Welcome to the place where I rant, rave and discuss books, writing, the town of Cobourg Ontario and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Writing Prompt-and-Share #24


Prompt-and-Share It's Wednesday's First Sentence theme continuing on the Prompt-and-Share. We all know how important the first sentence is to any story, it grabs the reader and pulls them in. We've been taking the first sentence of famous novels and writing our own little stories with them. Today we are gonna steal from Neil Gaiman's "American Gods". It's gonna be a tough one as he uses a character's name in the first sentence, luckily the name can also be an object so-to-speak.
In 400 words or less, tell us a story that starts with "Shadow had done three years in prison."
Take it away folks!
