trying to come up with new
for today's blog... this is pretty much how I can sum up my feelings:
So I decided to go back into my list of previous blogs and see which ones generated the most comments. It makes sense since many of my readers are writers, that the one with the most responses was First Sentence Saturday: http://color-me-read.blogspot.com/2011/04/first-sentence-saturday.html Wow- 28comments! Now that may not be a lot for some of you who have been writing blogs for years but, for me, that was awesome! (compare that to last week about the "End of the world" - there were only 7, and I think two of them were my responses!) Another thing I've noticed is that I never get many comments on my Holiday posts, but that could be because I only advertise once during the following week, and I suppose it leaves many more out of the proverbial loop (at least on facebook).
OK, so here is my idea for today. First Paragraph Saturday! Since the first sentence went over so well, perhaps my fellow writers would like to indulge me with their first paragraphs whether in their current WIP (work in progress) or any other novel, poem, or short story. You choose, we'll read! This will be fun!
The first paragraph of Ravenswynd
The sound of blood rushing past my eardrums echoed the roar of my pounding heart. What the flaming hell was I thinking? My only solace came from knowing I wasn't the only idiot waiting on a dark pier on Friday the thirteenth at exactly seven-thirteen. There were twelve others. Had anyone else noticed all the thirteens? Although I hoped that this was only a series of coincidences, an icy chill coursed through me as I tied it in with everything that my best friend, Fiona, had been saying all along about the secret party. Without question, something strange and frightening was about to take place. The air bristled with a weird intangible energy. And this weirdness was only a taste of what was to come – the party is the main entrée. I didn't even want to think about dessert.
Feel free to comment on my first paragraph, but don't forget to add YOURS too!
Have a great
Thanks for reading and participating!!
