#FirstLineFriday (or Where I Laugh About Old Stories)


So, I don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but my friend Rami @Rami Ungar the Writer introduced me to #FirstLineFriday. He’s been doing it for a while and thought that by tagging me (or people in general) it might spread. So, what is this mysterious weekly feature you may ask?

The Rules:

  1. You create a blog post on your own blog entitled โ€œ#FirstLineFridayโ€, hashtag and all.
  2. You explain the rules.
  3. You post the first one or two lines of a potential story, a WIP, or a completed or published story.
  4. You ask your readers for feedback and encourage them to try and do #FirstLineFriday.

I have to say, I haven’t been working on Dreamer or Break Up Buddy in a while now. So, sharing something from that would feel more than just pointless, especially since you already sort of know about those stories. Now, I once told you that I used to write at a younger age and posted those written ramblings on Figment. To rightfully do this tag or feature or whatever, I headed over there to see how I started my stories out. This one is from a story called Secrets of Ridgmont and like everything back then, I started it out in a school. Take a look yourself:


Of course nothing is normal! I don’t know … would you want to read on? I thought the story itself was quite smart back then, even though I am well aware that you all have no idea how it continues. Yet, looking at the writing … it definitely showed how young I was and that English was not my first language. It’s hilarious to read though, so if you want to have a good laugh and/or are bored, click here to read more.

Now, in the spirit of spreading this feature a little more as well, I am going to tag people too!
