Hookers and Hangers Blogfest: Hangers

Hi all! It's time for Part Two of the Hookers and Hangers Blogfest, and I'm happy to say that my hangers are a lot better than my hookers (at least I *think* they are). I've decided to go with the same structure as last time, so here are the last lines of the first chapter of my three WIPs.



Forever Friday:
"It's okay, senorita," the woman said, slowly prying my fingers free of her arm. "We've landed."


Needle's Eye:
Her father's footsteps had faded down the hallway before she found her voice again. "They don't."

Revision:
And we never, ever bite the hand that feeds us.


What a fun blogfest! Thanks to everyone at Falling For Fiction for hosting!

I like that first one the best. Paints a funny picture, at least out of context.

What I love about these is that they imply some really tense scenes happened to get your characters there. Good job.

I like the third one ;) Though somehow it makes me think it's a rule to be broken...

Great endings to all your first chapters. I really like Needle's Eye. It really makes you wonder what's going on with the dad.

Thanks for participating!!!

I really like the first one 'cause it tells us so much about what happened in the chapter, even though we haven't read the rest of the chapter (well, maybe the first line...somewhere...sometime. hehe). But my fave is the last one!

Cassie Mae said...

Oh, I can't pick! They're all so great! Very intense and I'd for sure have to keep reading.
