The Lucky 7 Meme

I recently received this award from Sherry who writes the Mama Diaries blog. The Lucky 7 Meme award is for writers, and it's a chance to showcase your latest manuscript. Here are the rules ...

1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 sentences exactly how they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.

Here is an excerpt from page 77 of my manuscript, ENCROACHED ...

Thinking about my sheltered life, I felt foolish, so I changed the subject. “I’ve been up here with Jimmy a lot of times. It’s steep now, but it’ll level out soon.” We continued up the mountain, stopping occasionally to rest and catch our breath. We must have been climbing steadily for about fifteen more minutes when Mitch suddenly came to a halt in front of me.
I stopped instantly, nearly bumping into her. "What's wrong?"

Here are 7 writers I'd like to tag. Please check them out!

1. Kelly Polark
2. Peggy Ehrenkranz
3. Kim Kasch
4. Green Girl in Wisconsin
5. Bish at Random Thoughts
6. Terry Lynn Johnson
7. Elysabeth's Emerald City
