Lucky Seven

Thank you to Linda Budzinski for tagging me in this! If you don't know Linda, you should. You can find her on her blog or on Facebook.

Here's how it works: I have to turn to page 7 or 77 of my current work in progress, count down to the 7th line, and print the next 7 lines. Then I get to tag more writers. Sound like fun? I think so! :)

This is from page 7 of my YA contemporary WiP, GIRL IN TROUBLE.

Since I’m a new patient they want to know all about my medical history, and apparently the medical history of my entire bloodline. If my great-great Grandmother’s sister had a persistent hangnail, they want to know about it.

Once that’s all finished the nurse checks my blood pressure, temp and weight. Then Mom and I sit in a cold little room and wait for the doctor.
“Are you nervous?” she asks, putting her hand on mine. I take a deep breath and shake my head. It’s a lie of epic proportions.

So now onto the tagging! I'm going to tag Leigh Covington, Suzi Retzlaff, Lizzy Charles, Jessica Salyer, Jenny S. Morris, Monica Ropal, Susan Crispell, and Meradeth Houston.

Oh, and PS. I was over at the YA Nightstand's blog yesterday talking about fairy tales! Come say hello! :)


  1. Good last night...really makes me wish I had more to read.

    I love that this bloghop is making its way around again. I love getting sneak peeks at everyone's WIPs.

  2. Great scene!!! Very intriguing :) And thanks for the tag!!

  3. That's a good excerpt! I wish there was more!

  4. Great excerpt! I would have continued to read more.

  5. This blog hop is always so much fun! Sounds like a great book.

  6. Excellent snippet! Always ready to read another of your stories.

  7. Love it, especially the hangnail line!

  8. What a fun meme! Really love the snippet you shared. I'm constantly seeing doctors for various things, so the medical history part was amusingly relatable, heh. So curious about what's going on with the narrator!

  9. Nice excerpt, especially the last line! I also like how the mother put her hand on the daughter; I think it revealed what their relationship was like.
