4th Writers' Platform-Building Campaign: Seven Meme

Well, I've been bad with the Write Campaign but wanted to try and play catch up! Traci was nice enough to tag me in the 7 Meme that other Campaigners have been doing and it's been fun to see the results! The Rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP 2. Go to line 7 3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating 4. Tag 7 authors 5. Let them know


I decided to choose a portion from my YA Sci-fi novel (first book in a trilogy) that I've been working on since last summer.

The Facility

Her arms would burn and that would be just what L.A. wanted. “Feel the burn,” he often said. After hearing it a dozen times a day she was ready to spike him. But she feigned a smile when he winked at her saw her struggle as her arms were ready to go limp but she pushed through it.

Getting her bearings Celia got on her knees then her feet as she watched the girls flirt with him.

(Admittedly not the most titillating part of the book, but hey some tension is there!) :-)
