#FirstLineFriday – Jome

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 Jome, part of the Thirteen Guests collection.

Jome checked his watch. It was after midnight already. He’d meant to arrive yesterday, but a delay had set them back and now they were crawling in at nearly the last minute.

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

  1. I’d take out “nearly,” but other than that near perfect.

  2. I wonder what’s to follow, which is just how it should be.
    Here’s possibly the first line of my new novel. “First it was the dogs. Some people complained while others laughed. Others warned us of what might follow; but we didn’t listen – none of us are laughing now.”

  3. Reblogged this on Readsalot and commented:
    Hi Joleene!
    No first line today, but wanted to share a link with you. Indies Unlimited is doing a ‘What books are you reading this month’ post.
    And guess what? I put Ashes of Deceit up there. Check it out
