L.2 = Lucky Seven...again

So yesterday I asnwered Cambria Dillon's Lucky Seven challenge...and today found out that Katy Upperman tagged me as well. Go read them, because they are brilliant! Ah, it's nice to have friends. And LUCKILY, I have another WIP to share.

Here are the rules...

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (or I guess if you have 777 pages, that’d work, too)
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences AS THEY ARE. No cheating/editing/tweaking/weaving magical word spells!
  4. Tag 7 other authors. I'm not going to tag 7 more...scroll to yesterday to see the Lucky 7 of my YA contemporary.
This is MG. And it's more like nine lines, not seven.


Moth rolled her eyes. How long before the torture ended?
On the stage, Monarch adjusted her robes and cleared her throat. "Classmates. Family members. Members of the Fairy Community. We're gathered here today to celebrate Fairy Academy's 350th graduation and our own long and satisfying journey through the esteemed halls of our school to embrace our newly appointed assignments..."
Right, thought Moth. Embrace my assignment. The world of toenails is just so interesting and fun. Those teensy weensy itty bitty toenails. All curly and sharp. Sometimes yellow. I can't wait to start. I might lose my lunch. Moth coughed into her elbow and actually felt a little vomit in the back of her throat.

Oh my goodness... I am SO glad you posted this! So much spunk and personality in the voice. LOVE.

For the record, I don't write MG, but I read tons of it and I think its voice is the most difficult to get right. Such a fine line between being fun enough to engage, yet not insulting with silliness.

I think you nailed it!
