First lines given – the prequel

First Lines Given is a new series that I’m starting this year. This is something I used to do as a kid, but I haven’t done it in a few years.

In the comments below, give me one sentence. It can even seem as dull as possible. From there, I’ll create the beginning of a story or flash fiction. I’ll try to leave a comment about when the story from your sentence will be posted.

So, leave a comment below!


Want to see some examples?

  1. I love this idea! It’s such a clever way to put your writing skills to the test. 😉 Okay, here’s my sentence:

    “I was supposed to learn how to drive, but instead, I got a crash course on anti-psychotics.”

    ^^^That’s just one of the many short writing prompts I’ve created over the years, but haven’t ever done anything with. I’m super psyched to see where you take it.

    1. Glad you liked the idea!

      I’m going to try to do these in the order I got them. So, since you’re the first one, I’ll be doing yours first. Might be a few weeks until it’ll post since I’m ahead of schedule, but I’ll let you know when it’ll be posted!
