It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.
Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Amanda’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.
I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. No need to tie it to the picture, unless you want to.
Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!
Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction. Create a link (ping-back) to this post and add your link to Mister Linky below.
This day was summer when the sun shone, and biting winter when clouds overtook the sky, a tumultuous mix of seasons in the span of an afternoon. It was that sort of weather. The end of winter and early spring , whatever you called it. You could never be sure how to dress for going out. Not that it mattered much to Lisa today as she planned to stay in and work from home. Her little girl wasn’t feeling that well and had to stay home from school today. Luckily, Lisa had the option of working from home so she opted for it.
At midday, she was feeling the urge to step outside and Linda was feeling better too. So they decided to pack a picnic lunch and stroll over to the local park to enjoy the sun peeping through the clouds. Their outing was curtailed when the clouds came together and rain started falling. They rushed home but on the way, Linda slipped and fell on the wet pavement. Lisa picked up her little girl and hurried home. And a surprise awaited them at their front door. A basket was sitting on the porch, and nestling in it was the cutest kitten Linda had ever seen. A note attached to the basket said the her Aunt Jane had come, but finding no one at home, had left the kitten for them to find on their return.
