I want to give a big thank you to the wonderful and nerdy
L.G. Keltner for this award.
I've done it a couple times before, but hey, it's a lot of fun.
Plus, she had a different badge to go with it!
Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript
2. Go down to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines.
4. Tag 7 others. (I'm not going to tag anyone. Take it if you want it!)
This excerpt is from an older manuscript entitled LEX. It's ten years old this year. If I don't have a title, I always named my story after the protagonist. It's a dystopian romance. Lex is unlike any other heroine I've ever written. She's not hard, bitter, witty, magical, nor is she a fighter. She's very naive and thinks in strange ways. Her strength is in that innocence, because with it comes unwavering hope.
Here's the excerpt:
"All of us here outside the city live without the dust. We're able to make our own happiness without using the drug to induce it. A lot of people think Faery Dust is very bad. That's why in the Hearth yesterday the others were so insulted you asked for it. You didn't know you were asking for a bad thing, but they were offended nonetheless." Aelwyd spoke softly.
"I didn't mean to say something bad. I only want to make people happy."
