Found here. I’m on Day 6 which promises to be fun, frustrating, and or interesting.
Select a book on your shelf and pick two chapters at random. Take the first line of one chapter and the last line of the other chapter and write a short story (no more than 1000 words) using those as bookends to your story.
I picked The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
First sentence is from chapter 35:
The force of the storm wall nearly knocked him unconscious, but the sudden chill of it knocked him lucid.
Last sentence is from chapter 17:
Just like every day.
I did keep looking for a first sentence until I found one that didn’t have a name in it. Brandon Sanderson as a specific style for his names that’s definitely fantasy and I didn’t want to feel trapped in fantasy. Last sentence was the first try.
