New Creations Blogfest

I stumbled across this blogfest today and it intrigued me. It’s so easy, just take the last sentence from your favorite manuscript that you wrote in 2010. And then take a first sentence of a 2011 project. Here it is:

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Last Sentence: 2010 Project:

Her heart fluttered with happiness.

(from “Intimate Healing”, coming in 2011 from Sapphire Blue Publishing)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

First Sentence: 2011 Project:

The instant she opened her eyes, terror raced through her.

(from “Midnight Lover”, a romantic suspense I started in late 2010 and intend to sell in 2011.)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

So here you go. What are your first’s and last’s? Join the blogfest. Here are the rules and the other participants: New Creations BlogFest Info

  1. I love the different emotions in the two lines--one is light; the other, dark and suspenseful. Very intriguing!

  5. Hi,

    Lovely sentences both: in separate context.

    As one paragraph it lends a whole new perspective and a great opening for a new story! ;)

  12. Hi Angelina
    Your writing contains very different emotions soft restful warmth to end and a more suspenseful tone to the opening. They certainly don't belong in the same novel. :)

  13. Nice choice of verb on the ending sentence. Good luck on you book.

    The first line is disturbing. Creating emotion on the first sentence is a major hook. Good job.
