The wonderful Aimee Duffy has just tagged me in her post The Lucky Seven, thanks for nominating me Aimee :-)
The challenge. Post seven lines from an unpublished work of fiction. My current WIP (nearly finished) was called Riding High last week, but over the weekend I had inspiration and it's now got the title 'Choices'. It has been one of those tricky ones to write... but it's getting there finally (and no I've not edited it yet!!).
So, the rules:
§ Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction)
§ Go to line 7
§ Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating§ Tag 7 other authors to do the same

And the seven lucky nominees are -
