#FirstLineFriday

It’s Friday again, so you know what that means. It’s #FirstLineFriday!

Now, if you don’t know what #FirstLineFriday is, let me break it down for you. On Fridays, you:

  1. Create a post on your blog titled #FirstLineFriday, hashtag and all.
  2. Explain the rules like I’m doing now.
  3. Post the first one or two lines of a potential story, a story-in-progress, or a completed or published work.
  4. Ask your readers for feedback, and encourage them to try #FirstLineFriday as well (tagging is encouraged but not necessary).

I don’t really have a story to match with this week’s entry. I just thought it was a good set-up for a story, so I’m going with it. Perhaps someday I’ll write a story with it. We’ll see. Anyway, enjoy:

“I think some of this shit is ancient,” said Damian, opening up another box. “We could probably make a killing off of all this shit.”

Careful Damian. Some of that shit might actually make a killing.

But what do you think? Good? Anything that you’d change? Let’s discuss.

And while we’re at it, why not try #FirstLineFriday on your own blog? It’s a lot of fun, and for writers it’s great practice when it comes to openings. Why not try it?

That’s all for now, my Followers of Fear. I’m skipping tagging someone this week, so I’m just going to end this by saying that you should expect Video Rage-related posts this weekend. Believe me, I’ve got one or two on the way.

Until next time!
