Today's Task: 12/1
"Write the opening line for your debut novel."
I loved this task because I have three ideas floating around at the moment.
1. A fantasy novel based on a recurring dream I've had for years. It will open with the line: "I awoke to the taste of sand and blood."
2. A satire/dark comedy exploring the history of religion and faith. I have not decided how to open this book, but I know how it will end.
3. A short piece of teen fiction expanded from an old creative writing assignment. I intend to keep the opener: "My life began the day I died."
