#FirstLineFriday -Eagan

FLFIt’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 Eagan, part of the Thirteen Guests collection.

Eagan oversaw his luggage being deposited in his room. Hands on his hips, he gave the servant’s directions, then bid them out when they’d finished.

What do you think? What’s your first line for the week?

  1. I would switch out “oversaw” and replace it with “watched over,” as well as take out the apostrophe-s in “servant’s.” Other than that, good opening.

  2. Reblogged this on Readsalot and commented:
    First line from Blood and Fire: The Draconos Saga Volume 1

    Nick opens his eyes. It is dusk, his usual waking time. He is hungry-or thirsty: the two are synonymous for the adolescent.
