Wednesday Writing Challenge: First Lines

Welcome to the Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Every Wednesday, I pose a new writing challenge here on the blog. These challenges come from books on writing, classes I've taken on creative writing, or sometimes just from my own imagination. If you're an author, hopefully they will help you get your writing juices flowing and help you improve your craft.

 

 

??  Want to Participate  ??

The Wednesday Challenges are open to all readers. In order to participate, simply comment on the challenge post with your response to the exercise. Not only is it good practice, but you could win something nifty and fun!

 And now...

***Here's Today's Challenge!***






Write an Opening Line.

Just an opening line. No more. No Less.

Make it something the will grab us and make us want more.

 

Something like:

"The first thing I remember is dying." 

 

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Hints and Tips:

.

Less is more, but give us enough to want even more.

Leave us with a question, a mystery, a tantalizing detail.

Give us a hint of what kind of story this opening line belongs to. Is it a romance? A mystery? A western? Think of what sort of details would give this away.


Give me your best, darlings!!
