Challenge Three: Literary Lines
Write a story in either five hundred or one thousand words--no more, no less, no
number in between.
Use any one of these lines from famous works as your first line. Obviously, cite
them. Find out where they come from, it'll maybe give you an idea what to write.
If you can't find out, I'll tell you.:
"The world is a pancake. And you so are not blueberry syrup."
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a
good fortune must be in want of a wife."
"The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there."
"I went to Venice, which drove me mad with its beauty and made me want to be in
love, which is always very depressing. The human heart is terribly flawed. We
yearn for love and then when we do love we invariably pick someone who won't love
us back. I think what we must yearn for then is the depression that precedes
love. It's much more popular. So many more people tell me they're depressed than
tell me they're in love."
"It was a pleasure to burn."
