Thursday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books” — A Fun Little Exercise

on October 31, 2019

Hello to all my friends and followers! It’s been a busy, stressful day, and I just looked up at the clock and realized that Thursday is half gone, and Friday will be here in a matter of hours.

As a writer, I’m always on the lookout for story starters. For this week, I would like you to turn to page 168 in the current book you’re reading, and copy a complete sentence from the 9th line. Don’t reveal the title, just the sentence.  You need only share one sentence. By the way, the more sentences I receive, the better, so everyone please share, and tell your friends about my blog.  Now, with whatever sentences I receive by November 7, 2019, I’ll work them into a short story as my gift to you for following my blog which I will post on November 19, 2019. Sound like fun?

    Ooh, cool idea. Very fun. “He chooses another direction to leave the courtyard, circling away from the bonfire again.”
    Good luck!

    I glance at Sharon, who is sitting to my left, and who hasn’t said a word.
