I have been challenged by Annie Whitehead to publish 7 lines from my WIP (work in progress).
The idea is that you take a page ending in 7, then go to line 7 and post the next 7 lines.
This excerpt is from Harriet of Hare Street.
“And you thought you would be able to eat cake all day long, did you?” asked the baker.
“No, ma’am, certainly not.” Not all day long, anyway, but how had the woman guessed? Harriet looked longingly at the array of pastries and fancy cakes on the counter.
“Well, I don’t need nobody, so clear off.”
“Oh.” The woman didn’t need to be so rude. So much for the kindly-looking face. “Well, I would not want to work for someone as horrid as you, anyway.” She ran out, but not before being tempted to grab one of the cakes.
I nominate Ann Brooke, Eeva Rislakki, Dan Strawn, Margaret Penfold, David Bowman, Paulette Rae, Paula Lofting
