Today I’ve decided to go in a different direction. I’m sure I’m like most writers–a hundred different stories floating around in my head. This is one I started a while ago and I’ve been thinking a lot about it. It’s a young adult and these are the opening six sentences.
The last time I got a good night sleep was May 16th. Three months ago. That night seemed a lifetime ago. Another planet. I had gone to bed a normal teenager with normal worries, like whether or not Peter Myer was going to ask me to the prom and if he did what was I going to wear. Now I could barely remember what Peter looked like.

LOL Oh there’s a lot more than teenage angst happening. The tentative title of the story is End World. 😀
Don’cha love those teens? They are almost as much fun to write as a fireman! Fun six, Ceri.
Which reminds me… I have a story with a hero fireman (well, volunteer) that needs completing… 🙂
I thoroughly enjoyed how you weaved in his name and what he once meant to your heroine. Turmoil. Nice six!
That’s a good hook. Leaves the readers asking a lot of questions. Great beginning.
Thanks so much, Elin. Nothing better than grabbing the readers with the first few sentences. Thanks for stopping in.
Lots of questions, many options for where the story is going. Poor Peter though LOL. Great six!
Poor Peter indeed. Though I still haven’t decided Peter’s fate. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in.
You’ve got my interest! I’m imagining the directions this story can take from paranormal to sci-fi to fantasy, or something else? Great hook, Ceri, and intriguing six!
Good Morning, Ryan. Thanks so much! I’m thinking of leaving my comfort zone and doing a mix, a little paranormal, a little sci-fi.
Good beginning–really draws you in.
Hi Sueann. Thanks so much.
