Inspired by what might have been a throwaway comment on facebook by Alvarado Frazier, I thought I’d launch a series called WIP Wednesday, when I post on aspects of my Work in Progress. I’m not sure how it’s going to go, or what exactly I’ll write about from week to week, but it’ll be reflective of whatever WIP-related subject is on my mind at the time.
And what better way to start off by participating in the Lucky 7 Meme? I’ve been tagged by Tami Clayton, and here are the rules:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs, and post them as they’re written.
- Tag 7 authors, and let them know.
- If your WIP doesn’t have 77 pages, it would be perfectly acceptable to post 7 lines/sentences from page 7.
Hmm. All righty. From page 7 of my fantasy WIP:
“Definitely. In my view they are ready now.”
“What are you training them for?” Adehl asked, her hand shading her eyes as she followed their movements. “They are not to remain with the company, I take it?”
Frahto almost smiled as he contemplated his response. Freish like her were just the reason the teams had been conceived. “No. They will ride out beyond the plains as representatives of the Vuusah. We are finding them very effective.”
“Effective at what, exactly?”
And now to tag 7 other writers:
This is fun! Not sure whether the 7 lines above mean much out of context, but it’s fun to get even a tiny glimpse into the works of other writers. I’ll be watching avidly.

Very cool. This IS a fun game! I was tagged, but I can’t remember who tagged me, so I have to figure it out for a post tomorrow. LOL
It was Laird I think… Yes, isn’t it fun!
Yeah, seriously, “Effective at wha,t exactly?” Inquiring minds want to know!!!
As much fun as the Lucky 7 Meme is, and having a peek into everyone’s pages, there’s this little glitch of being left hanging …
Yes indeed – you can talk! I’ve just been to your post! Sheesh.
Patience, Barbara…patience. ;D
Peaked me interest. Keep writing. I want to read the rest of the story. Thanks for playing along with us.
Great excerpt, Ellen! Enjoyed reading it and am hoping to get the chance to find out more some day…
Thanks, Tami – one day, fingers crossed 🙂
It left me wanting more. I’m with Adehl – effective at what?
Sounds like you’ve got a great theme for Wednesdays – I’ll be stopping by!
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Jennifer – would love to have you along for the WIP Wednesday ride…
Great excerpt, Ellen. The names are particularly cool 🙂
