Lucky 7 Meme & Sunshine Award

I haven't posted in a while and I have some tags to catch up on! First, thank you to Jade Hart of Dream, Write, Publish for the lovely Sunshine Award. Here are the questions:

Favorite color: Red
Favorite animal: Cat
Favorite number: 4
Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Iced Coffee
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook...I'm not even on Twitter. Shame on me.
My passion: Writing, of course. Oh, and my husband.
Getting or giving presents: I'll say giving, although I do love getting presents too. It's close. :) But today was my son's 2nd birthday party and we got him a plastic slide for the backyard. He must have gone down it 200 times.
Favorite pattern: That's a weird one. I have no idea. I'm not a fan of patterns really. I prefer solid colors.
Favorite day of the week: Friday
Favorite flower: Rose


And....thank you to Tracey Joseph and my critique partner Gwen for tagging me in the Lucky 7 Meme.

The rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

It's such a fun idea. I remember when I wrote a book when I was 15, I would ask my mom to say a random page number and I'd read it to her. I was lucky, mine is at least coherent by itself. Here is the 77-7-7 from Destruction.

“I think she’s lying,” Amanda said.
David weighed her words like she did with the paperweight. “What do you mean?”
“Or perhaps, she is mistaken,” she amended.
“How could she be mistaken?”
“Crystal Carr,” Amanda said. It was so odd to hear Amanda say her name. Especially…like that. She slung her name at him like it was a decisive point that could end any argument.

Here are my 7 Sunshine Award and Lucky 7 Tag Recipients:

 Thank you all for being awesome! Stay tuned for the next installment of March contests!
