I'm starting to realise that, if I want my short-story writing class to get off to a good start, I'm going to have to try and write one some time before it starts.
Now, I'd be the first to admit that I'm not brimming full of story ideas. Otherwise my blog posts wouldn't be mostly about me and TLM. But I don't want to write some confessional piece as a first attempt, because:
1. I won't know any of those people well enough to share personal details with and
2. they might not like me any more, if I do.
So I'm asking you, dear reader, to send me a first line. Any line, as long as it isn't "It was a dark and stormy night", because I think that one's been used before.
Now, the class isn't until July, so don't expect to see a short story from me straight away. But I might decide to post the more interesting-sounding ones...
