Writing Off The Edge for including me as one of her recipients of the Lucky 7 Meme. It was such a surprise and at first I didn't know what the Lucky 7 was for. Well, now I do! According to the list of rules, I'm supposed to:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines as written.
4. Tag 7 other writers.
5. Let them know.
This is an intimidating exercise because it gives specific requirements. According to the rules, I can't pick my favorite MS and my favorite 7 lines, but no matter what shape those 7 lines are in, without editing, that's what I put. So, without further adieu, here's my 7 lines of "The MacKenzie Chronicles: Part 1 - Supernova."
As he reached for his belongings, a wave of dizziness overcame him and he passed out.
He woke again in sick bay. This time, there were bandages on his face and the monitors at the head of the bed chirped in a steady rate along with his heartbeat. He looked down to find a tall, black man dressed in a white uniform standing at the foot of the bed.
"I see you're awake again. Can you tell me your name?"
"No... I can't remember," he croaked. "Can I get some water?"
So there it is. And now it's my turn to bestow this award on some of my favorite writers.

3. Susanne Drazic - Putting Words Down On Paper

Congratulations to all you talented writers. I hope you all enjoy this fun award!
