suricattus/Laura Anne has resurrected the First Lines meme, and since I promised myself I could do a few of them when I got through this chapter, I’m gonna. So there. :)
UNTITLED: An airship hung beneath the doubled stars.
(Actually this has a title but I’m not telling you what it is yet. :))
REDEEMER: The punch clock bit holes in Rosie’s time card with a satisfying ka-chunk.
(I hope this one goes somewhere.)
FOOL’S GOLD: Everybody’s saying how normal I am.
(YA novel I’ve got 17.5K written on. Needs characterization work. Bet I could finish it in a month if I had time.)
STRONGBOX CHRONICLES #4: this is my secret
(Wrote that line what, six years ago? And it made me smile as soon as I re-read it, because I remembered immediately what her secret was. :))
MANIFEST DESTINY: Thin light colored the close horizon a feeble red and washed over scraped-together dunes before falling into harsh shadows.
(I have fifty freaking thousand words written on MANIFEST DESTINY, but after THE PRETENDER’S CROWN’s utter flop, I may never get to finish this one. Very sad. Also needs characterization work, and actually I don’t like that first line much anymore.)
BACK TO AVALON: Dawn breaks over Stonehenge, minutes past five in the morning.
(ah yes, the second of my Methos Chronicles (I’m sure you’ve all read the first one, IMMORTAL BELOVED). I would so very much *love* to write this and the third book, PROMETHEUS BOUND, but I can’t see it ever happening.)
Ok, going back to work now. :)(x-posted from the essential kit)
