It’s Friday again, so you know what that means! It’s #FirstLineFriday! On Fridays, you write a post with the title “#FirstLineFriday”, then you post the rules (which I’m doing). Finally you post the first one or two lines of a potential story, a story-in-progress, or a completed or published story. Then you invite your readers to give you feedback on the lines you’ve written.

Since it’s October, the best month of the year in my opinion, I’m doing only stories that take place around or involve Halloween (or might, I have so many story ideas that are waiting to be written I can never be sure when any of them may take place until I truly start to work on them). This week’s opening is from a story I came up with on Wednesday, and is particularly hellish:

The soldiers at Fort Ivory had all heard the stories about Crane Ravine. Most laughed at the stories, but few actually dared go near the ravine, especially around Halloween.

Thoughts? Critiques? Errors? Let me know.

That’s all for now. I’ll try putting out a post or two this weekend, but if all goes well I’ll be busy all weekend. Until next time, my Followers of Fear!
