Susanne Drazic of PUTTING WORDS DOWN ON PAPER tagged me for the Lucky 7 Meme last week. Thank you, Susanne!
I hadn't heard of this meme before I was tagged, but I think it's a fun one. Here's how it works:
Lucky 7 Meme Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them as they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.
For the first time since he had moved to Alaska, Danny took out his phone and called Chicago. He briefly wondered what time it was there, and was momentarily confused about whether he was ahead of Chicago time or behind it, but then decided he didn’t give a damn anyway. He didn’t want to waste any more time, and this had to start now.
“Hello, this is Agent John Fisher.”
“Hello, Agent Fisher. This is Danny Fitzpatrick.”
Danny wasn’t surprised to hear silence on the other end of the line.
“Fitzpatrick?” John finally said. “Are you kidding me?”
“Not at all.”
“What the hell? Where are you?”
“I’m in Alaska. I work in Fairbanks now.”
“Alaska? Are you kidding me?”
“Still not kidding you.”
“Why haven’t you called anyone? I haven’t heard from you since…”
He stopped talking in mid-sentence, illustrating exactly why Danny hadn’t called anyone.
