So, as far as this challenge goes, here are the rules:
1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next seven lines or sentences as they are – no cheating.
4. Tag 7 other authors.*
*If this tagging works anything like a droplet infection, everyone I know should be tagged by now. So, I want to work the exclusion principle instead. If you read this, and you haven't already been part of this challenge - consider yourself tagged as of now!
