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.
Your line for this week is:
The pen wasn’t worth anything, but Maddie pocketed it anyway.
” The pen wasn’t worth anything, but Maddie pocketed it anyway because it had a deep emotional value for her. She knew that she should not have done it as it wasn’t hers to take but it belonged to her mentor and guide, her late father. Through a legal loophole, all the possession of her father now belonged to a distant cousin of hers. She had no interest in challenging the ruling of the court. She only desired to keep it as a memento of her dad. As she rose to take her leave from, her cousin’s voice reached her ” Aren’t you forgetting something ” She turned around, an enquiring expression on her face. ” The pen” he said with a cynical smile. Maddie took the pen out of her pocket and placed it on the table and left the room wordlessly.
