TAG–I’m it–or so Patty Blount tells me.

Filed under: Check-it-out, Fun and Games

Claire Legrand, author of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls (August, 2012), started a game of author tag.  Patty Blount, with her debut novel SEND coming out August 1, 2012, has claimed to have tagged me. I’m skeptical. I ran seven miles on the morning of said “tag” and I’m pretty darn sure she didn’t even get close enough to touch me but–this sounds fun–so I’m going to play along anyway.

If you’re tagged, you have to do the following:

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
  4. Tag 7 other authors

Here are my seven lines from page 77 from the first draft of THE OPPOSITE OF GRAVITY…


Today, keeping a low profile worked for me, although every time I looked up I’d catch Charlie staring at me. I pretended not to notice.

   When the bell rang I gave an audible sigh. I was relieved that from here on in I didn’t have class with Danny, Julia or Charlie. I wouldn’t have to make small talk or have them checking up on me every time I found myself drifting into space. I could feel free to focus on trying to anticipate exactly what Mr. G was going to say and what I was going to say back.

            I’m not going to lie.


And there you have it. And in case you’re interested–there will be lies.

Now I must tag seven writers. Here they are…

1. Jodi Moore

2.Mindy Weiss

3. Megan Gilpin

4. S.J. Pajones

5 Carli Bandeira

6. Jeni Bell

7. Linda Hanlon
