Lucky 7 Meme

So, I got tagged for this meme by David P. King, yay! (I think?)

Here are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they're written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 other writers.

This will be...interesting...because my WiP isn't completely in order right now. Like I've said, it's a blob. So this is from page 77, but it might not be the *actual* page 77 once I put everything together.

Anyway, here goes. This is from Leonel's POV in New Novel:

What bothers me the most is that Roslyn told me to come back today, as though she thought they would still be there. Like she didn’t even know. I don’t think she did know, which is just weird. Wouldn’t they have to prepare for something like this? Wouldn’t Byron have told her?
I’m figuring out a bridge to my new song when someone starts banging on the door. I stop playing and jump up.
“I know you’re in there! I can hear your music!”
“Hell, it’s the landlord,” I say. Scott nods solemnly, his eyes shifting around the apartment. “You’re fine. Just stay here.”

...aaaaaand, that's it!

Here are the next Lucky 7 :)

  4. yay, I love that you shared from your WIP :)

  5. I like your excerpt. Raises a lot of questions. :) Thanks for tagging me, I'll see if I have time this weekend to do this.

  6. Nice snippet. And it's nice to meet you! :)

  7. I've had a go... (and as usual, I'll give my disclaimer about not having started editing yet, and it being very much a first draft...)

  8. Nice! Love it. I really want to try this, but unfortunately my WIP hasn't yet reached 77 pages.
