It’s 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, and title the post #FirstLineFriday (just like this). It’s a lot of fun, so feel free to join in! You can share your link on my blog comments, or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind FLF).
Today’s first line comes from the short story Möngkedai, part of the Thirteen Guests collection.
Möngkedai flipped the magazine page and gritted his teeth. How much longer would it be until they landed? If he didn’t get a cigarette soon he’d hurt someone.
What do you think? What’s your first line for the week?
