Flash Fiction Challenge: Another Opening Line Challenge

Last week’s challenge: “1667.”

Once again, time to write just the opening line to a new story.

No more than 15 words long.

Plop your opening line in the comment section below. Only one entry, please.

Then, the following week, it will be the task of other writers to pick one opening line that they will use in a new piece of flash fiction.

If you write the line that is most chosen by other authors, I’ll send you a signed physical copy of my new writing book, The Kick-Ass Writer. I’m not doing the picking, so your goal is to write a line that excites other writers enough for them to write a story using that opening line.

Tricky? Could be.

So, get to writing.

You’ve got one week — due by Friday, November 15th, noon EST.

(I’ll send the physical book and pay for shipping if you’re in the United States. Outside the country, you’ll have to front the shipping, I’m afraid, or be okay with an e-book copy.)

  1. “Jimmy!” Balingrud said, incinerating the God-parasite that escaped my pores. “Good to see you again.”

  2. “Why are Atheists always the first to cry out to the heavens for mercy?” sighed Victoria, one hand dousing the lifeless body with cheap vodka and and the other retrieving a packet of matches from her pocket.
