Well, it seems that there is a new award-meme making the rounds these days. Yes, after months and months of VBA’s, BBA’s, KBA’s, and whatever else they could come up with, the creative community of the blogosphere has invented one more award. And it seems I’ve been nominated! It’s called the Lucky Seven, and its actually a creative way of promoting aspiring authors and writers. Here are the rules as I understand them:
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction)
- Go to line 7
- Post the next 7 lines or sentences on your blog as they are (no cheating, please!)
- Tag 7 other authors to do the same
Of course, step one for me is to thank the person who nominated me, so an unreserved thank you to Richard of Richard’s Ramblings for the nod. Next step, the 7 lines from line 7 of page 77 of my manuscript, known as “Data Miners”:

Doesn’t make a lot of sense taken out of context like that does it? Oh well, who am I to question the rules of this award system? And now, my nominees, all of whom are awesome writers who are currently hard at work producing those manuscripts!
