FIRST LINES STORY
With books read in January 2019
Throughout the years, I have seen book bloggers having fun with the first sentence of books. At the end of 2018, I tried to write a text combining all the first sentences of the books I had read. Well, with over 70 books, that was a bit too much for my little grey cells.
So I decided to do it for each month.
The rules are simple:
Reorganize the first line [meaning, first grammatical sentence] of each of the books you read during the previous month, in such a way as to create a story. Adjust pronouns etc, as needed.
I read 7 books in January, but one book started with a super long sentence. Even cutting it, I could not fit it in.
So here is my January First Lines Story.
The words in italics have been added to fit. The words in brackets are the original ones n the books.
I address these lines – written in India – to my relatives in England.
It was a windless night and glowing snowflakes fell through the trees deep in the forest.
The old man came out to the garden.
But who was [is] that staring at him [me] through all the stars in heaven and all the creatures on earth?
Walking back to camp through the swamp, he [Sam] wondered whether to tell his father what he had seen.
And he [Val and I] couldn’t wait to get back to France.
