First Lines Challenge: Day 5

Deep, darkening circles told of her endlessly sleepless night-pondering and pacing, anger and confusion, fear and pain-of memories pulling her back in time and pushing me into the unknown, a stranger in my own home with similar tired, sad eyes.


Practice the power of opening lines. Take the 30 Day First Lines Challenge.

  1. I actually went to school for journalism and got my bachelor's degree but I'm now interested in pursuing a masters degree in creative writing so this will give me some insight into how the program may work. Cool blog idea!

  2. Thanks! I go to SNHU and LOVE my classes (three more to go!). I hope what I've learned will be helpful to you.

  3. I'm not sure where that is but go you! Three more classes to go that's fantastic! What do you plan on doing with your degree? If you don't mind my asking.

  4. I definitely would like to teach in some form. On the other hand, I have a great opportunity at my current job in healthcare to fall back on, so I could really use my degree for my writing while I have stability and income in a different field. That seems to be the formula for many writers, ha!

  5. Great exercise Krista! I gotta play catch-up for the challenge, but I'll start now. Here's my first:
