My writer's group has been playing a chain email game where we share the first lines and last words from our novels. Since we're sharing, I'm posting them here too. Do you have a favorite first line of all time? A favorite last one? (thinking of Scarlett O'Hara's last words here.) What are your most unforgettable first and last words?
Lemme know in the comments.
Moth in Darkness: The dancing would kill her eventually.
Fly in Paradise: Blackness swelled and hovered around the woman
Spiders from Memory: Hoof beats rang like gunfire down the alley.
Dimensional Shift: She hit the deck at the sound of footsteps on the front stairs.
Aspect Ratio: "How many?"
Echo Location: Stevie leaned around a clump of cactus and peered into the burrow.
Unlikely: Satina could smell the paper from the street facing entrance.
Horded: Had she cared about THIS town, she might have warned them not
to wear the Shade colors, not to mess with gangs at all.
Space Slugs: The sign above the main spaceport read: Welcome to the planet Crag.
The last words almost make a found poem. If you have some of those, heck, share them too. :)
