However @vanessagrassi kindly tagged me in her 'Lucky 7 blog game' which is a game to share a small hint of our current works in progress with the online writing community.
Here are the rules (stolen from Vanessa's blog):
1.Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating.
4. Tag seven other authors.
So without further ado, here are the 7 lines from p77 of our 90 days novel manuscript as it stands today:
With suspicion clouding her judgement, it was often hard to be sufficiently empathetic.
The news clearly came as a shock. Mrs Sugden just that there, silent. A tear rolled down her cheek.
It was her sister who broke the silence.
"How did Peter die?"
Hayley paused. It was an odd situation. She had dealt with murder victims, accidental deaths and even cot deaths in the past. Death by self defence was not in her repertoire of expertise.
"He drowned in the river Thames. I'm ever so sorry." It was the truth. The widow didn't need to know the specifics of how he ended up in the river.
I'll be tagging 7 authors in the next few moments (after post creation so this link can be sent), and I'll update the comments section with their names.
