There’s a meme doing the rounds (one day I’ll figure out what a meme is), prompting people to post their WIP first lines.
A couple of weeks ago, I put up some of mine. Since then, I’ve kept my eyes peeled, looking for other people to do the same, but haven’t seen too many.
I've only started one more WIP this month, a 100-word drabble called Canary in a Coalmine. Here's the first line:
Twelve hours after the tunnel collapsed, the last oil lamp went out.
How about you guys?
What’s the first line from your current WIP?
If you’ve already posted yours, feel free to link to the relevant entry in the comments section, if you haven’t, why not take a couple minutes to post an entry with them and link here?
Who knows, your first line could inspire a completely different story for someone else.
