#FirstLineFriday (Patrick)

I got this from Rami Ungar, who got the idea from a facebook group. On Friday you post the first one or two lines from one of your stories, novels, works in progress or potential stories with the tag #FirstLineFriday (with hashtag). He thought it would be fun to see the idea move into blogs (and start a trend), and I agree.

These two lines come from Patrick, a prequel I had shelved but am planning to go through in July (It needs a timeline revision, so that will be a bit of work). Mixed reviews from betas made me abandon the project, but I have decided (partially due to advice from awesome people like fellow author Maegan Provan – check out her blog post encouraging authors to “be themselves” in their writing) that though not everyone will like it, it is a story worth sharing because *I* like it.

 “Okay , Mom. Yeah, yeah, I promise.” Patrick glanced at the clock. It was almost nine, and he was late.

I moved out to get away from this.

Maybe not the catchiest opening, but that’s what you get from unfinished/unedited.

Want to participate in #FirstLineFriday? Just post a blog with that it the title and share your sentences!
