Happy Friday! Why is it happy? It’s the end of the work week and it’s also time for #FirstLineFriday! On Friday, authors post the first one or first two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a published work on their blog, titling the post #FirstLineFriday (like just this). It’s a lot of fun, so feel free to join in!
Today’s first line comes from Beldren, a Tales of the Executioners short story that I may end up putting in the anthology instead of the other one I had planned. I just can’t stand the idea of having no vampires at all.
“It is time to take what we are owed,” Matthias cried, and slammed his fist on the rough table.
Of course, Marjorie and Gordon (who still need a title) will still get to go in, so it’s just the old stories I am putting back on the shelf. That is if I can get this done in time.
So, is this first line better than my last one? Do you like a story that jumps into the action, or has some set up first?
