A Twitter pal of mine recently tagged me in a blog game called "The Lucky Seven Challenge." Normally I don't participate in these things, but since I haven't blogged in awhile, I decided this gave me a good excuse. So, here's how it works:
1. Go to page 77 of your WIP or latest book.
2. Count down seven lines.
3. Copy the 7 sentences that follow and post them.
4. Tag 7 other authors.
I'll do the first three, anyway, since the seven sentences serve as a rather nice teaser for my current work in progress, HARSH REALITY.
Could it all have been some sort of hallucination?
I blinked and shook my head, snapping myself out of my daze, and lit the lamp. The glow spread outward, revealing the disturbed pile of black ash to my right, from where I'd come. From--at least by my best calculation--right where I'd awakened.
No, it couldn't be.
Something else had burned there. It couldn't have been me.
And you all will just have to wait to get more than that. But I'm pleased to say that HARSH REALITY is almost complete. I've got about two more weeks' worth of work to put into it, and it's done.
