Meme: an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.
The Lucky 7 Meme is a fun game between blogging authors, where the one tagged uses specific guidelines (see below) to select a tiny portion of his/her WIP (aka: work-in-progress) to share with their readers. Afterward, seven more bloggers are linked in a post to carry the torch forward.
These are the rules:

3. Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
4. Tag 7 other authors
