The following is a writing challenge I snagged from Booking Through Thursday.
- Pick up the nearest book. (I’m sure you must have one nearby.)
- Turn to page 123.
- What is the first sentence on the page?
- The last sentence on the page?
- Now . . . connect them together….(And no, you may not transcribe the entire page of the book–that’s cheating!)
Here’s mine (From Katie MacAlister’s, The Last of the Red-Hot Vampires):
“I think I’m handling this very well,” I said after a few minutes of watching the night slide by the car window.
“You do?” he asked me.
I glanced over at the formally dressed man driving the car. He looked normal enough, but he was obviously very disturbed in the head. “Well, yeah. You’re telling me that the prince of hell exists and that he wants me to marry him. I haven’t jumped out of the car yet or laughed in your face – I’d say I’m doing awesome!”
He glared at me.
“The prince you refer to is the head of all the seven demon lords who rule Abaddon, and I’m sorry to say that they do very much exist.”
