7-7-7 Meme

Natasha Oliver recently tagged me. Now I must participate in a meme. Now, I sort of hate memes, but this one seems kind of fun, so here goes nothing.

  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written.

Fortunately, I’ve been working on the second draft of The Wedding of Earth and Sky lately, so I have page 77 already edited nicely.

Bhaalit chuckled. “The hard part will be building them. Everything after that is just standing and pulling.”

They began early the next day. Keshlik sent Bhaalit and half of the warriors with axes to to fell the lodgepole pines that grew a few miles upstream. The men were warriors, not loggers, so it took excruciatingly long for the first log to appear in the stream, bobbing to where Juyut and a half-dozen other young warriors plunged into the water and wrestled it to shore.

You may be asking yourself, Who are these log-chopping warriors? Where are they going? What are they building? How am I supposed to pronounce their names?

Unfortunately, I can’t answer these questions for you right now. Let me finish revising the book first.

(One hint on the pronunciation: Bhaalit is [ˈbʰaːlɪt]. Good luck with that.)
