I’m going to try and do this on the 7th of each month, with whatever I’m working on.
1. Go to page 77 (or 7th) of your current ms
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
Seven lines from the current WIP are under the jump.
“Is everything all right, Mr. Morrison?”
“I understand you’re leaving us in the summer,” Mr. Morrison said.
Barnaby swallowed. “Just for a few months,” he said. “My aunt is an archaeologist and has managed to get funding for an additional assistant, so that’s paying my way. She’s studying the Valley of the Kings.”
“Violet Sloan is your aunt?”
Barnaby looked at him in surprise. “Yes. That’s her.”
“Interesting,” Mr. Morrison murmured. “So your father was Walter Sloan.”
