Endings and Beginnings

Summer at My Inner Fairy had a great blogfest the other day...bummed that I missed it :( It was all about ending sentences and beginning sentences. Participants had to post the ending line of one story and then beginning line of another. Very cool! read some really neat lines!!

So I decided to post some of mine! Some are published, some are not. Some will be released this year, others are barely even started projects!!

Ending lines:

Maybe I could invent my own genre of fiction: Having-It-All-Lit.

She’d truly found paradise.

The happiness of mother and daughter was her top priority, and never again would she find herself anywhere other than where she wanted to be.

It was always there and would never leave them.

I’m flying once again.

I know that if a time ever comes that we find ourselves in need of answers, we’ll find them together.

It would stand for a dream, a chance to live one moment in the limelight, even if it was only in my imagination.

Just another layer of daughter protection, but we’ll save that story for another time.

And some opening lines:

They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

I fidget with my hair, smoothing an already perfect knot atop my head.

Many things in our lives go unexplained.

“Finito!” I screamed, not caring if the entire building heard me.

“Two egg whites, scrambled, wheat toast with blackberry jam and coffee.”

The crash of ocean waves echoed in Shelby Saunder’s ears while a soft steamy breeze blew the chocolate-colored strands of hair trailing from her twisted up-do.

Robyn Miller’s hands dove knuckle-deep into a mound of raw ground beef and egg as her daughter yelled from the living room.

Does anything entice you?? Maybe tomorrow I'll reveal where they came from! ;)


  1. Ooo . . .some awesome first and last lines. These two stood out for me:

    I’m flying once again.


    “Finito!” I screamed, not caring if the entire building heard me.

  3. Wow- i really enjoyed your lines. I'm very glad you were moved enough to post yours! Happy writing!

  4. Thanks! I was so bummed when I found out about the blogfest after the fact!! Tomorrow I reveal where each line came from!!
