In the interests of keeping me sane and as a distraction from Looping, Emmms has tagged me for a meme:

The rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people & post a comment here once you post it to your blog, so I can come see.

The nearest book to me is actually wrapped up as it’s a present for someone from a friend in Australia which I’m supposed to be delivering but, well… um, the next nearest book is a French pocket dictionary which may be a bit dull (p123: fantastique; fantôme; faon; farce; fard; ahemwhere was I?).

The nearest non-boring, non-wrapped book to me is: The Freelance Writer’s Handbook by Andrew Crofts.

p 123: “Tell them you’re going in search of drug barons of Colombia and you’ll elicit a better response than if you say you’re going to tour the vineyards of France. A visit to the caves of Bin Laden in Afghanistan will score a great deal higher than a visit to the Eiffel Tower. You get the idea.”

Page 123 happened to fall smack in the middle of a chapter on travel writing. I wonder what sort of hits my blog is going to get this week…

In my turn, I tag Kai, Kate, Ali, Alice, and Daisy. In fact, the usual suspects. Have fun guys!
