#FirstlineFriday

The truly terrifying, father of fear, Rami Ungar has tagged me for #FirstLineFriday. Thank you, Rami! This looks loads of fun.

The Rules:

  • Write a post called #FirstLineFriday, including the hashtag.
  • Explain the rules.
  • Share the first line or two of a story idea, work in progress, completed or published tale.
  • Encourage readers to comment and take part in #FirstLineFriday. Tagging is fun, but not necessary.

As I’ve almost finished my horror novella, Dead Jimmy, it seems like the perfect time to share its first line.

It’s a bad sign when the police showing up at work to give you bad news is the second most disturbing part of your day.

Tell me readers, what do you think? Does it hook you? Make you want to read more? Tell me all in the comments!

I hope you’ll take part in #FirstLineFriday. If you do, please post your links in the comments, as I’d love to read them.

I’m tagging Jonny from Jaunts and Haunts to take part next Friday. Fingers crossed he’ll post the first line to the sequel to his horror novella, Reaper.
