Lucky 7 Meme Award

  Something a little different today:  I just received another award.  This one is from Peaches at Conceive Writing.  Thanks, Peaches!  This award is for writers, and it's a chance to showcase your latest manuscript.  So today, you won't learn something new about me, but you will get to read an excerpt from a children's book I'm working on. 

Lucky 7 Meme Award Rules

1.  Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.

2. Go to line 7.

3. Copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them as they're written.  No cheating!

4.  Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.

Manuscript Excerpt ( I don't have 77 pages in my manuscript, so this is from page 7 of  Bubba and Squirt's Big Hole to China.)


Then I looked at Squirt, because I wanted to show her my good job. But Miss Lazy Bones was staring up at the sky. So I gave her a little something to attract her attention. Except she didn’t much like it. Because when my dirt ball hit her on the head, she said, “Hey, watch it!” real angry-like.

       “Oops,” I said. “Sorry about that.” I was. Really. Because I wanted that thing to go splat in her lap.

       She sat up and inspected my good job. “Not bad, digger dude.”

       “Want to help?” I asked.

       “Not really.”

  1. Hi Sherry! Thanks for nominating me for this fun award. Since I already have a blog post for tomorrow and the A to Z Challenge starts next week, I might have to wait until May to do this.

    1. Yeah. I've never had a Lucky 7 ticket either. I think if they were called Unlucky 13, we'd have better luck.

  3. What a fun section! Thanks for passing it on to me. I'm going to have to do this after I begin my revisions — after the A to Z frenzy!.

  4. Great names and nicknames. That was a fun excerpt.

    Thanks for passing it on to me (I did it awhile back, though). I'm reading so many great pieces in this meme.

  5. Sherry, I enjoyed reading that excerpt. The names are funny and the scene is funny. I want to read the book.

    1. If it ever gets published, I'll let you know. An agent is interested, but I have to rewrite the whole thing in this voice. It was previously in a third person voice.

  6. I love the lines you shared. Thanks for picking me.

  7. These sound like a couple of cute - and maybe mischievous - characters :-)
