Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

First Line Friday: May 22nd, 2020

John_Henry_Fuseli_-_The_Nightmare

It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Jim’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.

I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. No need to tie it to the picture, unless you want to.

Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!

Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction. Create a link (ping-back) to this post and add your link to Mister Linky below.

Your line for this week is:

Someday, this will be over– only remembered like some half-felt and fading nightmare.

About Dylan Hughes

Always short fiction, two times a week.

    This isn’t exactly on-prompt but was still inspired by this post, so I figured I’d share it. https://revivedwriter.wordpress.com/2020/05/24/like-a-dream-depart/
