What goes around comes around, and this is slowly going around. Rules of the game:
- Go to page 77 of your current manuscript / WIP
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them exactly as they’re written. No cheating.
- Tag 7 authors

She takes my hand with a brilliant smile and sweeps into the study.
“My dear Aeolus, I do hope you are not slighting the abilities of my sex?”
