Every issue of Poets & Writers magazine features a little section called Page One where some intriguing first lines are taken from recently released works. I've gathered a list of 26 of these lines, complete with book titles and authors.
Choose a number from 1-26 and I'll give you a prompt. If any part of it (quote, title, or author) inspires you to write 200 or more words or create an artwork for it by Thursday January 24 at 11:59 CST, please leave a link here. If you like, I can reward you with a drabble (recent fandoms are here), words to a WIP, or one hour of editing time to one of my "still in the drawer" NaNo novels.
Have fun and happy writing!
PS - I'm posting this before work, so there may be a delay before prompts are sent out.
