“My first time taking a bus in this town and what’s worse is that I was just hit with a card in my face. I pick up the card and notice that it’s a tarot card. Now what?”
The first line of a novel that doesn’t exist yet and hasn’t been started yet. What do you think?
Deidra Alexander was challenged to try First Line Friday by Rami Ungart at https://ramiungarthewriter.wordpress.com/ last week. Here’s the link: https://deidraalexander.com/2016/05/07/firstlinefriday-tag/. And I found it interesting so decided to try.
You can play along at home. Here’s what you do.
- Create a post on your blog titled #FirstLineFriday, hashtag and all.
- Explain the rules like I’m doing now.
- Post the first one or two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a completed or published story.
- Ask your readers for feedback and then encourage them to try #FirstLineFriday on their blogs (tagging is encouraged but not necessary).
