My friend, writer extraordinaire,  JuliPageMorgan, challenged me to #777.   What is #777 you ask? Follow the rules below (yes, there are rules) and you shall see what it's all about (it's not the hokey pokey).


1.  Go to page 77 of your current MS.

2.  Go to line 7.

3.  Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

4.  Go forth and challenge other authors (keeping in theme, preferably 7 authors).

Do you see what it's about?  Fantastic!  I knew you would.   :-)

My 777 excerpt will be from, REMEMBRANCE.   Enjoy!

********************************   777 EXCERPT    **************************

“What are you looking for?”

“The key. I had it right…”

“Are you bloody serious?” Tiernan exclaimed, a look of shock sat on his face.  He looked again at the ramshackle cottage then laughed out loud at the sheer absurdity of it all.

Aiden dug the skeleton key out of his jacket pocket and watched Tiernan laugh hysterically.  After a moment he asked, “Are you quite through?”

Wiping the tears from his eyes, Tiernan got his laughter under control then looked at Aiden and chuckled, "Who the hell would lock this place up?


  1. I liked it...thanks for sharing! The trouble with these excerpts is that they all start with something interesting going on, and then you don't get to see where it's going :)

  2. Thanks Mike. Yeah, I agree with you on that - some excerpts make you want more.
