I like that line -- rather interesting, and makes me want to find out more about your story. Which is a good thing, to be sure!

-

Mine is as follow:

Bright rays of sunshine were streaming down with unseasonable warmth that afternoon, drying out the grass and the people there alike.

I sort of just sat down last night and wrote whatever, though, so there's no guarantees there. :D

Well, lily.catherine, it seems to me that your novel is going to involve an emotional journey (as well, as a physical one, most likely) for the MC in which he will realize the true meaning for his being.

But I don't know how good I am at this. That's just what I picked up...

My first line is: "Stephen Reed had had enough."

My first paragraph is: "Stephen Reed had had enough. It had gone to far. He had told them to stop, but that hadn’t worked. He had tried to ignore them, but even as he slept he could hear their taunting; their bullying."

And that's the prologue.




"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Marianne Williamson

I like this thread. :D

Fangs, me gusta. :D Makes me feel like the kid is about to explode. Sort of almost like he's ready to kill someone, maybe even himself, hmm?
*has read her story*

Mine:
"“I’m going to make you an offer you can’t refuse.”"
This is followed by:
"The mobster leered into her face. “Really, now, sweetheart? What makes you think that?”"




You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.

Hahaha, I like that, dani.pink.cloud; the first line is a stereotypical gangster line, but a) it's a girl saying it; b) she's saying it to a mobster. Very clever :)

Okay, my first line is this:

The light shattered as she passed through it.

Since I've got a new story and all that, I guess I should post the first line of it.

Wolf couldn't summon the happening to his mind.

I don't understand it:embarrassed: It's about wolf?


My story starts with a letter so the first line could be any of three;

1) Vanton-Whis Technical 'Vos es no of somes of silenti etc'

2) Dear Dylan, Amelia & Kyle Clarke, We are sorry for your loss.

3)I looked at kyle after reading the letter to myself.

I think it's about three siblings who lost someone/something. Sounds interesting.


I guess I should have posted the entire paragraph. Meh. Here it is.

Wolf couldn't summon the happening to his mind. He couldn't recall falling asleep. Not even how he came to standing in front of Logan, not even why he was there in the first place. He could feel the warmth coming from the flames which covered his brother's arms and he could feel it crash against his skin just like the coldness which followed quickly afterwards. Then, he looked up, stared ahead, and let a smile tug at his lips.

Because I don't write in order, this is the temporary first line.

"Of this particular late night, Jazz was continuing her novel."

I do have something more impressive planned. >.> ...i think....

@Starship Ranger. Does your story have anything to do with Wolverine?

On a more serious note, maybe it has something to do with a car crash and Logan dying, and Wolf going off to avenge his brother....

You are starting in medias res neh?

Your temporary line is about... a bit interesting, but it's your temporary one.

@Pruechelan, nope. Not amnesia.

@LW, nope, not Wolverine. Mutations, yes, but not X-Men. Took the mutations idea from there, but developed it and changed it so much it doesn't sound at all as X-Men. Car crash, nope, but yes, Wolf will go to avenge his brother at a point. Or rescue him, your choice. And no, not really, not starting like that.
I think my story will be confusing.
