Stolen From Various Sources, Since All The Cool Kids Are Doing It
Tell me about a story I haven’t written, and I’ll give you the opening sentence from that story.
That one’s been going around, and I’m intrigued. (The original meme says “I’ll give you a sentence from that story,” but I write all my stories in strict chronological order anyway, so it’d be the first sentence regardless. Mise well be a challenge.)
Sufficiently silly responses won’t get a sentence; oh, I know many think it’s funny to ask me to write about the sentient whipped cream that ate Roger Ebert, but I AM SRS AUTHOR. (Also, and more relevant, purposely ludicrous ideas usually don’t get my motor running.) But if it’s an actual story idea, I’ll approach it with all seriousness. FOR I AM SRS AUTHOR.
(So srs that I technically “won” NaNoWriMo last night, at 51,000+ words, but I’ll consider it my personal victory if I can finish Act II before the month is over. More on that in a bit, though. This morning is therapist and then unfucking my dev environment for work.)
