Link of the Week – The First Line

We’ve all heard that the first line in a book is so important. A writer only has seconds to grab an audience, to make them want to read further. This week’s link does something different with the first line.

The First Line is a literary journal of short stories each staring with the same beginning line.

And I quote…”The First Line is an exercise in creativity for writers and a chance for readers to see how many different directions we can take when we start from the same place.

Any writer, no matter their genre or writing style, can submit to the magazine. It’s truly a fun experience and I highly recommend writers to try their hand at this unique journal’s prompts.

    I used to submit to them often. It really gets the creative juices flowing. Plus there is the chance of the journal publishing your story. Very cool!
