“U were born on the hottest Goddam day of the year!  At least that’s what your Mom always said was your Dad’s biggest complaint that day.”  The first line of The Story of U (working title), semi-started . . . sort of.  What do you think, guys?

I was challenged to try First Line Friday by Deidra Alexander at  Okay, Deidra.  It looks like I have accepted your challenge.

You can play along at home. Here’s what you do.

  1. Create a post on your blog titled #FirstLineFriday, hashtag and all.
  2. Explain the rules like I’m doing now.
  3. Post the first one or two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a completed or published story.
  4. Ask your readers for feedback and then encourage them to try #FirstLineFriday on their blogs (tagging is encouraged but not necessary).
