Welcome to my world and beyond...

A collection of snippets of the books I write and, occasionally, my life and the things that inspire my writing...

Lucky Seven Meme

I have been tagged by Kate Warren in the Lucky Seven Meme.  What is a meme? (Okay, not everybody knows--I didn't) *smiling*. From Merriam Webster.com : : an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture. 

Although this is a fun idea, those whom I tag need not feel compelled to participate; I know we all have such busy lives.  But...you DO get to post a snippet of your WIP...and connect with other bloggers via this exercise :-)

The rules, straight from Karen's blog:

Once you are tagged:
*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines/sentences as written and post them on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors
*let them know they've been tagged

The seven I am tagging are:
Daniela at Idiots & Earthquakes A Writer's Blog
Tanya at Life's Like That
Jay at Jay Squires' Septugenarian Journey
Danielle at Philosophies of a Young Heart
Alison at Fresh Pot of Tea
Connie at Life in the Realm of Fantasy
Ashley at Ashley Barron
Wonderful writers, all!

When I am done here, I am heading back to the links on Kate's blog to visit the other Lucky seven participants.

And without further ado...

WIP--I am working on today:     Fractured     Scifi/fantasy

One would think that when considering the physiology of uprights... of bipeds, there would be an unfathomable number of blood types in the universe.  How unlikely that a woman of unknown origin, speaking a previously unheard language... would have a blood type in our library.”  

His assistant agreed, “It is a thing of marvel. It seems that the likelihood is much higher than common reason would allow.”

“The chromosome match is what is astounding to me--that her genome has already been mapped and is in our database.”

This was fun. I had not shared much of this one yet.  The ms. is not yet complete...and there are two that will be published ahead of this one.  I am currently editing "Aaydan's Tale" for FIBP, and trying to finish "Whistle Pig Hill".  But, today, "Fractured" is my WIP while I take a break from editing.


  1. Okay Teresa! You're on! But I will have to post it on my writing blog, 'Life in the Realm of Fantasy', because I only talk about the work of other authors on 'Best in Fantasy'!

    1. I will check it out, Connie :-) It is a fun idea :-)

  2. By the way - I love your excerpt! Yay!

  3. I enjoyed this snippet. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read it--and to comment, Wendy! :-)

  4. Fascinating. Makes me want to know what the story is. Thanks for linking back to my blog. Jes never did post on the Lucky 7 but I tagged her mainly to nudge her about her writing.

    1. Hi Kate :-) I saw that she (Jes) had taken a break from blogging--had to manage a lot of personal things in her world. You are welcome for the link back. And thanks, again, for tagging me. This was a fun blogging adventure :-)!

  5. I am honored, Teresa! Can't wait to tag some fun writers in my turn. Thanks so much!

    And, I love your excerpt. The concept of having a Library of blood and genomes is amazing.

    1. Hi, Alison, I am so glad you are joining in! I am never sure if fellow writers are too busy for these. It was a fun one. You are quite welcome.

      Fractured is leaning toward scifi--and away from fantasy. Rather a departure for me. Good to stretch the mind...

      All fun :-)

  6. Oh great excerpt. Thanks for the tag! Looking forward to playing.

  7. Hi Tanya! Thanks...and I am so glad that you are going to play this one :-) Let me know when you have posted it and I will check out your blogpost--and the seven that you tag :-) Have a great week. :-)

  8. I'm intrigued! Loved your excerpt.
