The Liebster Rules:
1. Give to a blogger with less than 200 followers.
2. That blogger will pass it on to 5 followers with less than 200 followers.
3. According to Babelfish, Liebster means Dearest.
I'm pushing 400 followers (yay! nice to meet you, new followers) but Mary did say she was stretching the rules in her awarding. So I will stretch the rules in a different way. Anyone who wishes this Liebster Award, please feel free to take it and pass it on to 7 people via your own blog! I appreciate you ALL. You can follow the real rules or be renegade.
Lucky 7 Meme Award Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them as they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.
From page 77 of my post-apocalyptic/dystopian YA novel, SAFE ZONE:
I bound down the steps and jog to catch up.
"Peyton, Leonard," I gasp, more from a sense of urgency than being winded.
Leonard spins toward me. "Dude, what's up? You look all gray and pukey."
"I can't go to classes today. Let's go somewhere else. Please."
Peyton's eyebrows lift, but she says nothing. She jerks her head toward the front doors, away from the teacher who supervises the bus area.
Congrats to these lucky 7 authors who get to do the same:
1. Michelle Dennis Evans at Michelle Dennis Evans
2. Laura Diamond at Diamond--Lucid Dreamer
3. Keisha Martin at Keisha Martin
4. Victoria Lindstrom at Writ of Whimsy
5. Medeia Sharif at Medeia Sharif: YA Author
6. Cynthia Chapman Willis at Laptops and Lattes
7. Peaches Ledwidge at Conceive Writing
Tag, you're it!
If I didn't just pass this meme to you--what is ONE line from page 77 of your current manuscript? (If you write shorter works, then take it from page 7...or paragraph 7 if way short.)
Do you tweak the rules when you pass on blog awards, do you follow them closely, or do you just acknowledge/thank and NOT pass them on? I confess I do the latter sometimes when I'm crazy busy.
