Lucky 7 award – Novel extract

Firstly a huge thank you to Anita Chapman who awarded me ‘The Lucky 7 Meme’. Anita blogs over here and is an amazingly supportive and encouraging writer.

Here are the rules for this challenge:

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.

4. Tag 7 authors

5. Let them know

My current WiP hasn’t reached page 77 as yet, so I will be taking this extract from my first novel, which is still technically a WiP as I am sure there is more needing doing to it. This novel is contemporary romance and is currently called Head over Heart.

*****

Even though she was about to let him into the most vulnerable part of her heart, she felt she needed to create the physical space to protect herself. She could smell the faint singe of wood from the open fire and took some comfort from it. It smelt homely and safe. But she knew she needed to get it over with and actually say the words.

 ‘There was a deer in the road. We were down a country lane so Robert was going maybe a little faster than he needed to be, and this deer, it just ran out from nowhere and stopped in the middle of the road.’ She shook her head, her face creased with disbelief.

And the 7 lovely people I am passing the award onto are as follows:

Liz Crump

Jude Roust

Sophie Duffy

Catherine Miller

Nikki Wells

Sarah Tranter

Victoria Lagnehag

As Anita said on her post, please don’t worry if you do not have the time to participate.

And thanks again, Anita! 🙂
