Memed by the Lucky 7…


I’ve been memed!

The Lucky 7 Meme isn’t really an award but it’s more fun than being tagged for random bits of information. Why is this better, you ask? Well…because it involves sharing seven lines of your latest work in progress, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but never really got around to. Here’s my excuse to strut my stuff and I’m so excited.

Here’s the deal: whip out the WIP, flip to page 77, count down seven lines and then cut-and-paste the next seven into a document and share those beauteous words.

You’ve been memed, baby!


I’m not sure if seven lines is actually lines or seven sentences and the original Lucky 7 Memer got sloppy and inferred the meaning. Either way, 7 is the lucky number I have to work with.

Without further ado here are my seven from Apprentice Cat:

“Some of these quatrains remind me of old prophecies I read as a kit.”

“That may work,” mused Master Jalen. He stared into space, eyes unfocused.

“The question is, how do we go about getting the information we need?” he continued. “We can’t simply ask the Brothers to search their library for vague references. I hesitate to share any of this information with even them.”

“One of us could go,” suggested the Head Master Cat.

“That may call too much attention to what we’re trying to find out.”

The beginning of my seventh line began in the middle of a sentence, so I included the whole sentence so it would make sense.

Don’t forget to check out Lesann Barry’s Lucky 7 lines. I get to thank her for this special sort of torture. I lurk, read and wait. Publish faster, people!

In the meantime I’m about to lure more unsuspecting victims swimmers into the meme pool. I’ve tagged these writers to offer up a sampling of their wordy goodness:

Angela Wallace

Barbara McDowell

Jillian Dodd

Natalie Hartford

~ Patricia Sands

Steena Holmes

Tameri Etherton


The regular caveats apply. Should you choose not to participate nothing wobbly awful, amazingly stupid, or terrifyingly insipid shall happen.

But, I will be sad. *sniff sniff*

Don’t have 77 pages of a WIP ready to go? Fear not! No worries! My solution is that you offer up seven lines of whatever you’ve got. If you’ve already been memed, sorry…but you have to get these out there quick!

  1. “Publish faster, people!” Ha ha ha. Good stuff and it sounds like fun to play.

  2. What are they trying to find out! Cat’s know quatrains? That’s pretty darn cool. I love this meme and am so excited you thought of me. I’ve got mine ready to go for Friday. Thank you!!

      Here’s the one-liner of Apprentice Cat: A niave young cat begins training as a mage’s familiar and must solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance to stop a ruthless killer.

      I’ve always loved books with talking animals, especially cats. I’m a big fan of Shirley Rouseau Murphy’s Joe Grey mysteries and Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar series, so I guess it’s only natural that I’d pick magical, talking cats working with humans to populate my world.

      Can’t wait to see your Friday post. 🙂

  3. Talking cats are cool, no two ways about it. Thanks for inviting me into the pool. I’m getting ready to make a big splash!

  4. “special sort of torture”–lol. Great excerpt, Virginia! Since I just released my latest book, I’m not sure it counts, and I have to see if my next one has hit 70 pages yet. 😉
