Current Project: April Fools Novella
Status:First sentence written
I've been looking on the blog trying to get an idea but my mind still seemed a bit brain dead until this morning. Of course if I were a normal person, I would be sleeping in but I'm not. Instead I'm lying in bed writing my April Fools novella and thinking about my blog.
It's an epiphany! Well maybe not but I did get an idea for both in progress pieces.
Walking down the street eyes glued to her touch phone… How many times, as an editor, a reader, and an author have I read this? What a horrific thought—eyes glued to something? Whoa…hold on for dear life. What about—her eyes flew across the room? Were they ripped from their sockets? Did they sprout wings? Did they shoot there as if they were blown from a cannon? Or did they dance lazily, dipping and soaring on the air currents?
Hmmm. Is this food for thought? Maybe not. What crazy things have you read? Can you add to my short list? Since I now have an "almost" opening sentence, I need to get back to work before my mind retires again. Happy writing and to all of you out there who have a spring break…Enjoy!
