And can I just say I am so excited because this is my first tag ever. Thanks Renee. Hopefully I do it right. I think it's called Bookwormed.
Here are the rules:
1. Open the closest book - not a favorite or most intellectual book, but the closest at the moment - to page 56.
2. Write out the fifth sentence on the page, as well as the two to five sentences following.
3. Then open your ms to page 56 and write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five additional ones.
4. Tag five (or more) buddies to do this same exercise.
Okay, so here you have it. I actually had two books right next to my writing chair, but since I am mad at Charles right now for toying with my emotions, I will go with Miss Ann Brashares "The Second Summer of the Sisterhood" (or SHOT 2 as Candi and I call it):
"Can you believe that? I was worried I was underdressed, but he said I looked perfect. Those were his exact words. 'You look perfect.' Can you believe that?"
And my ms:
They were back outside. She was surprised to see that the sky had darkened to ominous. Drops of rain splattered on her face. Hailey glanced over to the tree she hadn’t noticed before.
“It’s not really the jail tree,” Toby whispered, obviously noting her gaze.
“I didn’t think so,” Hailey said.
“The jail tree is somewhere else entirely.”
I choose to tag:
Britten (I know you don't have a manuscript, so either leave out rule 3 or make up something fun, I know you can)
