Lucky Seven Game

[tweetmeme source=”nettiewriter”
I have been tagged by the lovely Susan Elliot Wright to take part in the Lucky Seven game where you go to page 7 or 77 of your WIP, go to line 7 and post the next 7 lines or sentences.

I am juggling far too many projects at one time but have chosen my kid’s novel to post from. So, here are my lines from Jimmy Gingerbeard, a Glaswegian pirate and nanny par excellence!

His mum would go mental if she saw the mess Jimmy was making in her kitchen. He began picking up the cans and lined them up on the counter.

“You can’t go around making this sort of mess. Mum would go crazy if she saw you throw all this food on the floor,” Billy scolded Jimmy.

“Aarrr, you has to make a bit of mess when you’re cooking. Haven’t you heard the saying? You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs. Ooh, eggs!” Jimmy headed back to the fridge to see if he could find some. He took out a new box of six eggs, removing two before throwing the rest over his shoulder as he headed for the frying pan.

Oh dear! What will Billy do? Jimmy is making rather a mess of Billy’s mum’s pristine kitchen, isn’t he?

Now, for the seven other writers I want to tag in the game.








And thanks again to Susan for giving me the opportunity to join in with the fun!

  1. I’m honoured to be chosen, especially as I have not had anything published as of now. I will have to dig into my WIP (a collection of scenes at present, not a novel) and choose the seventh at random).
