With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’ve decided to “shake things up.”
Does this mean I’m in the mood for love, or that we’re going to try something new?
I’d say a little of both.
I’m joining Monica, from Monica’s Tangled Web, on a project we’re calling, “One shot, two stories,” and the best thing is that you, dear readers, get to run the show!
The rules are simple.
Have a look at the photograph, provided to us courtesy of Keoni Cabral, a talented photographer and colleague of Monica’s, read the first line, and add a sentence.
The purpose to this exercise is to create a story; the story behind the photograph.
In the meantime, Monica’s blog will feature the same photograph, but a different first line.
Thus, we hope to end up with two very unique stories.
At the end of the week, I’ll post the story created at Monica’s blog and she’ll post the one created here, at One Sister’s Rant.
The person behind this fun concept is writer friend, Cathy Kozak, from While the Dervish Dances.
So lets recap:
1) Take a look at the photograph.
2) Read the first sentence (provided by me).
3) Read the previous sentences, so as to ensure logical flow.
4) Number your sentence and add it in the comments section.
You can participate as many times as you want but remember, only one sentence at a time.
Moreover, we have two stories taking place simultaneously.
Monica and I would love it if you participated in both.
Now, without further ado, let’s get this party started!
Here’s the first sentence:
1. Olivia looked at the sprawled cat on the bench; the same bench where Ethan had proposed ten years ago.
