Lucky 7 Meme Round 2, and blogfests galore!

Not to sound like a stereotypical Brit or anything, but, how gorgeous is the weather at the moment? In the South West of England, it's like summer! I must get to the beach, just in case this week is all the summer we're going to get lol!

So, Angela Cothran re-tagged me in the Lucky 7 Meme! This is probably one of my favourite memes ever, because it gives a glimpse inside everyone's work, and I'm just nosy like that! :D The last seven lines I posted have moved due to heavily editing my WIP, so I have some new ones for you, but first, the rules:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
  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 

Here are my 7:

"Why are you in here?" I asked.

"I just wanted to see you," Radleigh answered, with an air of smugness. It was clear that he had the sole intention of making me flip my lid so he could run to Richard with more tales of my incompetence. He couldn't have chosen a better time. He had already unwittingly given me a head start.

"Well," I said, taking a deep breath, "Actually I wanted to see you too."

He raised an eyebrow, but before he could make a lewd suggestion, I held my hands up and said, "Don't. This is serious."


For those who aren't sure (because I don't know if the phrase is used in the U.S) "flip my lid" is a more creative way of saying, "lose my temper" :D

I won't be tagging anyone because I think everyone has done it already, but if not, feel free to join in!


Now onto blogfests! I have signed up for a whole bunch of cool bloghops lately - and because there are quite a few, I won't mention them individually, however, you can see them all in my sidebar! I hope to see some of you signing up too!

I guess that's all for now, so I am going to get back to editing!


  1. this is one of my favorite tags too, cuz I'm nosy like that as well :)

    I'm excited for all these bloghops!!!! I think I'm addicted to them :)

  2. Interesting excerpt! I like the part where you wrote "before he could make a lewd suggestion", because those words right there suggested a lot about the character's personality. :)

  3. Is it weird that I'm jealous of the fact that you're British? :D

    Nice piece! I love the Lucky 7 Meme too!!

  4. Don't worry, I understood "flip my lid" as another way of saying "pissing me off"--your version is more eloquent, tho. :P

  5. So pumped for the 'Dust it off' Fest! I'll see you there :)

  6. Loved the seven lines! :D

    And I saw the blog hops you've signed up for. I've signed up for the Dust it Off one too!

  7. For me, it's a toss-up between the Lucky 7 Meme and the 11 Questions. I like this meme because I get to read other people's excerpt, which yours, BTW, is really good! But I also like the 11 Questions cuz I get to know more about the writers.

    Ack! Decisions, decisions! :)

  8. Love your snippet! And thanks for joining our hop!

  9. When I did my Lucky 7 meme this week, I just retagged (and linked back) to others who'd done it. Seems like everyone's doing it! And I knew what flip my lid means too. Don't hear it a lot, but I think most people would know what it means.

  10. Great snippet! There's lots of blogfests going on, but it's only the A to Z Challenge for me next month and that will certainly be enough itself.

  11. you're so cute, flip your lid is ancient american =)
    and i loved your fun snippet!

  12. I love reading these snippets :-)
