First Line Friday: May 22nd, 2020

Dylan Hughes is the host of First Line Friday


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 Jim’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:

“Someday, this will be over– only remembered like some half-felt and fading nightmare.

And you’ll look back on it with mixed feelings of relief and disbelief.”

“Enough of that Derik, I am feeling starved and you’re making jokes. If it weren’t for Annabel’s wedding in the fall, I would never torture myself with this impossible diet. But I don’t want to attend my best friend’s wedding looking like I still am seven month pregnant!”

“As I said, your crazy diet will be over after the wedding”
