Tag Week part Uno

Okay, so I've been a bad blogger AND I've had at least 3 tags in the past ten days (that I know about).

Time to get down to business. My apologies to my taggers.

I decided to tackle the most recent one first, because it doesn't require much (any) thought. :-)

The wonderful Sara Hantz (author of THE SECOND VIRGINITY OF SUZY GREEN) passed me this tag. Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people and post a comment to the person who tagged you once you’ve posted your three sentences.

Okay, so I guess the instructions imply fiction, but I'm in my office and the closest books on hand are writing books, so I randomly grabbed THE WRITER'S JOURNEY, by Christopher Vogler. The three sentence block straddles a mid-chapter subtitle (the perils of choosing non-fiction for this tag) so I'm not counting the subtitle as a sentence. :-) Such a rebel I am.

The young man's learning is so complete that when the movie ends, he is ready to take Barbarossa's place as a larger-than-life folk hero.


Mentors can be regarded as heroes who have become experienced enough to teach others. They have been down the Road of Heroes one or more times, and they have acquired knowledge and skill which can be passed on.

Wow. Riveting stuff, eh? ;-)

Okay, so now I have to think of some people to tag, and I guess it would be pretty rude to tag anyone who's tagged me recently where I have yet to take up the tag... (This week, Kwana and Bev. I promise.)

I tag:

Mel Francis
Christine D'Abo
Bonnie Staring
Marilyn Brandt
Elizabeth Kerri Mahon


Marilyn Brant said...

Okay, I did it! And thank you, my friend...I seriously needed a blog idea for today and didn't want to start commenting on the antics of our local school district (however tempted I might be :).

Sara Hantz said...

It's definitely tagging season!!! Sorry, about the spelling mistake. It's been corrected :)

Maureen McGowan said...

No problem, Sara. It's a common mistake. I just hope that some day I'm more famous than she is.

Elizabeth Kerri Mahon said...

Thanks Maureen, I just posted my today.

Bonnie Staring said...

I finally posted mine today, in honor of Memorial Day. ;) Thanks for thinking of me...I'll tag you back real soon...
