First of all, a very Happy Birthday to Summer over at My Inner Fairy I hope the next year is wonderful for you and your family, Summer!
Summer is hosting the very cool New Creation blogfest today- one that even with my pathetic eyesight (so many words, so little vision...)I can't stay away from. Here's what she's asked for and it's very simple:
1)Pick one ending sentence from last years stories, your favorite one that you wrote. (Only one, and yes it has to be an ending sentence)
2) Write one brand new starting sentence for a story you have been thinking about, or something off the top of your head. But it must be your first sentence. (Yes only one, and yes it must be new.)
I can do that! So here we go.
Sentence one: The ending from one of last year's stories: taken from my flash fiction piece Wish Trip, which is I think the most meaningful fiction thing I wrote in 2010. It's only 250 words in total so here's a link if you want to check it out.
Now here's the new sentence- straight off the top of my head and I am thinking even though it runs on a little, it could stand alone as a micro-fiction piece...
The three most vital, adored, despised, and dangerous words in the English language are deceptively short, pretty, and innocent until combined-- after which they have the unearthly, sometimes unholy power to build, break, save, or destroy.
I had originally included what those three words are but it definitely seemed to need a second sentence and besides- I think it'd be more fun to get your comments as to what three words come to your mind. Make me laugh or bring tears to my eyes, people. I know you can.
Be sure to check out the other entries! Thanks to Summer for hosting.
