Where It All Begins
✪ Submission Closed

Every story needs a good opening line or paragraph to begin with. For example some of my favourites include:

“One minute the teacher was talking about the Civil War. And the next minute he was gone.” Goneby Michael Grant

“Newborn #485GA18M died on June 30, 2076, at 6:07 in the morning. She was three days old. The average lifespan of a human child, in the time since the break, was fifty-six hours.” Partialsby Dan Wells

“The end of the world started when a pegasus landed on the hood of my car.”The Last Olympianby Rick Riordan

“First the colors.Then the humans. That’s usually how I see things.Or at least, how I try.” -- The Book Thiefby Markus Zusak

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." -- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling

All of these are great books that I highly recommend.

But now its your turn.

Make up a fake title for a book then write the opening first line or paragraph.

Some Rules:

Nothing too excessive, the rating is PG.Characters from other books/movies can be used. But keep them in character please!Two entries per person.If you choose to write a paragraph rather than a sentence, please keep it within two.

Sounds easy? Hopefully it should be.

Good luck!

Additional note: I am going to be away for the next week, so when I get back I will read and comment on all the entries then!

Finish This Very Interusting story
✪ Submission Closed

Tyler found himself attempting to catch his breath. After he realized that his breath was actually a homogeneous mixture of gasses, he realized catching it would be pointless. He was utterly Befuddled about that events that happened only moments before the moment that he currently found himself stuck in. The whiteness of the room he was now stuck in made the very definition of white seem awfully dark.

Although it was cold, hard, and terribly quiet, He found this white room to be adequately more pleasant than the english class he was previously stuck in. Though he was entirely unsure how he came to travel from the terrible english classroom, to the slightly less terrible white room.

He decided he would do something that wanted to try for a number of years. To go completely insane. He’s wondered why he hasn’t brought himself to doing this yet, because in his mind letting go of sanity seemed a rather pleasing experience.

Just as Tyler began talking to the voices that have always been whispering to him from his mind, he heard a sound.

“Which one of you did that” He angrily asked the voices in his head.

“I’m not sure” Said one of the voices whom Tyler had decided to name after his fish, Sean. Sean the voice was by far the most sarcastic voice in Tylers head, which Tyler thoroughly enjoyed. He was a rather amusing character tyler enjoyed listening too. Sean always had something interesting to say. At least Tyler assumed he did, though after all, he’d only started talking to sean a few moments ago.

Sean the voice had been named after sean the fish simply because that’s how Tyler saw him, as a fish. He had no idea why he imagined Sean as a fish. Perhaps it’s because that most sarcastic person he had known prior to talking to Sean the voice was Sean the fish. Sean the fish had always been extremely sarcastic. Every time tyler asked him to swim, sean swam. And due to His extreme boredom in life, Tyler thought that a swimming fish was the best thing that could ever happen to him.

A repetition of the noise made tyler think about what made him name the voice in his head in the first place.

“So you're positive that that wasn’t you right?” Tyler asked shawn.

“I think so… But I only know what you want me to know seeing as the fact that I am merely a figment of your imagination.”

“I see your point” Tyler said to sean.

The noise repeated.

“So um… How would you describe this noise that we recently heard?” asked tyler

The noise repeated

“I think it sound very much like the noise that we heard previously to the noise that we have heard recently”

Tyler never thought that his own mind could be so confusing

The noise repeated.

“It sounds copious.”

“I don’t know what that means” said sean.

“I don’t know what the sound means, therefore I used a acceptable adjective”

A door that Tyler had failed to notice existed suddenly opened.

“Welcome to the intergalactic insane asylum.”
