Welcome, fellow writers, to First Line Fridays!
Each Friday on my Facebook Page, I present one of my first lines, and then ask other writers to submit one of their favorite first lines from something they’ve written. It might be from a novel, a chapter of a novel, a novella, a short story, or even micro fiction. The only rules are these:
1. No more than one submission per week.
2. No submitting the work of others (especially if it’s published).
3. Do not submit the same first line in multiple weeks.
So how do you enter? Look for my posts each week and leave a comment. Then, listen to our Google Hangouts podcast each week on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM PST, or check the Facebook comment thread to see who won for the week. At the beginning of each month, we’ll look back at the weekly winners and run a short poll to see who will be the winner of the month. The winner will get a $15 dollar gift card to their choice of Starbucks, Target, Amazon, or iTunes. Every year in June, we’ll look at the past twelve winners and vote for the yearly victor. That winner will receive a $50 gift card to their choice of Starbucks, Target, Amazon, or iTunes.
So sharpen your pencils and get to crafting!
