I've been tagged by Guilie of Quiet Laughter for the Lucky 7 Meme--thank you, Guilie! This is a fun, social media version of a chain letter for writers.
So what do I need to do?
1 -- Go to page 77 of my WIP (okay, if I tagged you and your a blogger, chances are you don't have 77 continuous pages, so pick a 7 of some kind - page 7, paragraph 7 or 77, line 7 or 77, etc and skip to step 3, adjusting as needed - 7 lines, sentences, words, letters...).

3 -- Copy the next 7 lines, AS ARE (no cheating, no tweaking, no polishing for any reason at all) and paste them into a blog post (thus here we are) to share with the world
4 -- Tag 7 other authors (including bloggers) (see? it's a chain letter!)

“Jack,” she greeted him like an old friend. “It’s good to see you again.” She offered him a drink and led the men and Kiki to the veranda to watch the sunset. “Did you hear Angel Martín’s show today by any chance? Our mayor invited you on a chupacabra hunt.”
Jack groaned. “Oh, dear lord, do people actually listen to that show? I was on the other
Now to figure out who my fellow Lucky 7 will be...
