#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Seventeen)

FLF

feel free to snag this for your own posts!

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for First Line Friday – the day when you share a first line from something you’re working on, have published, or maybe just jotted down. To participate, title your blog post #FirstLineFriday (hashtag and all) and feel free to share your link on my blog or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind #FLF)

Today’s first line is from Chapter Seventeen of my novel in progress, Masque of the Vampire.

Katelina woke when Jorick bolted upright. She blinked tired eyes against the vague knowledge there’d been a sound.

This is okay. Not 100% happy with it, but it’s not terrible. What do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?

Have a good one!

  1. I think you could change it up a little. “Katalina and Jorick awoke, rubbing sleep from their eyes. Had there been a sound a moment ago?” That’s just how I’d write it though.
