Firstly…..thank you to everyone who commented on my IWSG post yesterday. I really value your support, and although I may have sounded a bit blasé about my decision, it was quite a turning point for me, a moment of release, but also a moment of regret. So thank you, for your understanding…..I can’t figure out if im being brave, pathetic or incredible stupid lol. I guess time will tell. 🙂
So now, for some fun, to cheer myself up lol
Whitney, over at A Serendipitous Happenstance has tagged me with the Lucky 7 Meme 🙂
I was also nominated by Paula Acton and as I’m a rule breaker, I won’t be doing it twice, especially as I only have one WIP, well, semi WIP lol.
My apologies Whitney & Paula, that I haven’t dealt with this earlier, but what with the holiday, life’s been a bit of a whirlwind lol
Anyway, here are the rules…..
1. Go to the 7th or 77th page of your Work in progress.
2. Go to the 7th line of the page.
3. Copy the next 7 sentences or paragraphs. Remember, they must be as they are typed.
4. Tag 7 authors.
5. Let them know they’re it!
Obviously But Not Forgotten is not exactly the current WIP (see yesterday’s post) but I’m afraid that’s all I have at the moment lol 😦
So here are the 7 sentences 🙂
Ruby remembered how her father had always wrapped her up in cotton wool and she put this down to being an only child.
She slowed the car as she passed the office. Hopwood’s Chartered Accountants in big blue letters above the door. She remembered the day the shop had become available, how excited her father had been that he could now live and work in this beautiful village. He’d spent fifteen years commuting to the local town. Personally, she found it stifling, and couldn’t wait to break free. As a child, she’d decided that she wanted to be an Accountant, just like Daddy. After completing her schooling and university she had made him proud by joining him in the business.
Ha ha ha, well that couldn’t have been a more boring part of the 2nd chapter (hubby said I should have cheated!)!!!!! Lol….why the hell did I decide to write about Accountants? Lol….don’t they say “write what you know” and I know nothing about Accountants lol. And did you notice the clichés? *groans* lol
I Am Tagging:
Virginia at Poeta Officium
Ava at Journey Or Jordanna East
Laura at Quill Wielder
Please don’t feel obligated to take part, but as I’m sooooo goddam nosey, I’d just love to read a snippet 🙂
Out of curiosity dear readers What is the main profession in your WIP? Is it a job you’ve done yourself or will you need to research?
I had Accountants, Solicitors and Police in mine, none of which I’ve ever had any dealings with *groans* Lol 😉 A lesson to be learned I think lol.
In what I’m editing currently, my female lead is a divorce lawyer and the male is a doctor
WIP #1 – A street photographer. I had to do loads of research on cameras, dark rooms, and film developing.
WIP #2 – A recent high school graduate who takes care of her invalid mother.
Ooooo, I bet that was great fun though. I think I might have to have a photographer in one of mine 😉
My protagonist is mentally ill and institutionalized but she has a psychologist and a ward nurse. I’m neither of these so research is a must however I have managed to bypass time on the internet since I met a mental health nurse at my daughter’s friends party of all places! He helped me with diagnosis and ‘typical’ symptoms – a HUGE help intact 🙂
*infact, not intact 😉
Wow, that must be quite hard, but glad to hear you know someone who can help 🙂
Thank you so kindly! This is a new one for me but out of curiosity I’ve tried the whole 7 thing on my own. BORING! And, not representative of the rest of the WIP. Since I have been editing, let’s hope when I tackled it again it is more interesting.
My main character works in public relations but the story centers on her love of food and cooking. I haven’t worked in PR but I’ve worked with PR professionals as a client. However, I cook, so that part was easy!
Ahhhhhh, yeah, fun as well 🙂
Does your mouth water when you write about particular foods, or do you have the urge to eat something because you write about it? I blooming would!!!!! Lol 😉
Oh, no, I think I better steer away from chefs, I’d end up eating too much! Lol
You’re welcome honey xx
My friend said it took a long time for him to finish my book because he kept wandering into the kitchen for something to eat!
Ha ha ha brilliant! 😉
