The Lucky Meme

The Lucky 7 Meme

I was tagged by Chantel Rhondeau this week to participate in the Lucky 7 meme. The rules are:

  • Go to page 77 in current WIP
  • Go to line 7
  • Copy down the next 7 sentences and post them as they're written
  • Tag 7 other authors
  • Let them know
Background: Jake and Amanda go on their first "real" date together.

Everyone and everything around them disappeared as Amanda felt Jake’s breath in her ear, “Sorry about Ryan and Charisse. This really hasn’t gone as I planned.”
“Now I have you.” Amanda looked up into his eyes.
He held the small of her back with one hand and twirled her to face the opposite direction. They both chuckled and then danced to the music quietly.
“Remember when we danced at my homecoming seven years ago?" She smiled up at him. "All the girls were envious that I was with you.”
“Oh yeah. I was a freshman in college and you got stood up.” Jake winked.
Amanda winced. “Thanks for reminding me.”

I hope you enjoyed Jake and Amanda in Time Changes Everything. As you can see, they are rediscovering each other. More exceprts to come on 6 Sentence Sunday!

Check out these other romance writer's I know. I've personally read their work and don't think you want to miss reading their 7 lines! The first 5 are previous or current critique partners. The other two blogs are from favorite authors. Enjoy!


  1. I got tagged three times. My post will go up tomorrow. Thanks for tagging me, too. :)

  2. I love the last line here! Great scene.
