Snippets . . . I try to write down any small bit of something that comes to me throughout the day in hopes it eventually becomes something.  Below are three unrelated snippets over the past day, things that are sparked by the oddest of details of the day.

steph_annie2000: I stumbled upon this community...

I wrote this story and halfway through the first chapter it just fell apart, currently there are two chapters but only a couple worthwhile paragraphs. Here is the first one...

helplessCollapse )

Background Info on the story, it's in first person point of view, which often times turns out bad, but it was just the way I wanted to go. It's about a teenage girl named Livia, whose life is falling apart (that's about all I have left from the outline, which I obliterated).

geekpoet: first post :)

Ok, this is my first post here. Feel free to tear it apart or whatever. It was written as the beginning to a story in a journal-style, but didn't get much farther than this (I'd post the other two paragraphs, but this is First Paragraph right ;-) )

I wanted to write something involving characterisations of the Seven Deadly Sins and maybe include some of the Heavenly Virtues.

Anything obvious like wars is so painfully cliche, and having them as opposing rock bands is outright hilarious.

Help?

Okay, so I'm thinking right, and I'm thinking
"Why not just write something cliche? And just enjoy writing it?"

So I'm pondering, briefly, and I get;

I don't see why the 7 Sins can't be sprites, associate an element with each (maybe) ((force of habit)), shove them on a lost island talked about only in legends and suddenly, when an earthquake/natural disaster/etc. starts plauging citizens of X then they decide to seek out island Y to investigate substantial rumours of a prophecy
Meanwhile on Z a crack team of DivineAngels (island NOT talked about) are being assembled for the same purpose but with a much more severe mission than exploration
Throw in a romance sideplot between a DivineAngel and a SevenSin to emphasise the partnering of good and evil, make it a big surprise when the child turns out to be human, verify the existance of all humans and question the religious stories of creation, and boom

I figure the SevenSins would be more like sprites and fantasy creatures, while the DivineAngels while not human would have much more of a humanoid apperance...

I'd need to develop some sort of runic version of each of the sins name, and then a Roman Alphabet translation of them, otherwise it'd be too obviously linked to the seven sins

guineverekoopa: Chapter 87...

Y'all recall my last post, aye? Well, um, call this a really long first paragraph >_>

Can't think of what to say after this...Collapse )

It's only one paragraph. Really. REALLY.

For those of you not willing to go read chapter 86, Nome and Doron are married, Doron is working as a nurse, and their daughter, Janae, just had twins. Those twins would be the Jonathan and Karen that they're talking about. And Drana is Diren's mother, Diren being Janae's fiancee and the father of her twins. The previous scene takes place inside the hospital waiting room.

sunreon: *random first postage*

AND, I even have a paragraph for you guys. :D which I am working on the rest of the chapter. But I figured it'd be fun to toss it out. Even if it isn't quite the full purpose of the community.

Blame Guin! She told me to come! *points*

BetrayalCollapse )

THAT would be Shenemar, the leader of the Legion of Rogue, from my colab-fic, Violence of Oppression, which can be found here. Reviews are always appreciated. ^_^ In advance, thank you much, much love and gratitude and an envelope containing $20 will be sent to your house in the mail next week.

...Not really, but I like saying that anyways. Enjoy!

guineverekoopa: Well, Matt said I could.

Okay, so, here's my problem. I've got an 86-chapter story, and chapter 87 is the LAST CHAPTER, but I have NO IDEA how to start it. I know what happens, like... The stuff that would be described (her kids, etc) but I have no idea how to start it off. I know that I don't want it to go outside the hospital, and I know that (since she has twins) her son is born deaf and her daughter is born blind. Cuz of...some stuff that happened around chapter, like, 50-ish, I think.

ANYWAY.

Here is a link to chapter 86. If you want to actually read all 86 chapters (god forbid), then go here.

That being said... How should chapter 87 start?

guineverekoopa: I have a question.

What if you need help STARTING that first paragraph? My problem isn't so much that I can't get past my first paragraph, it's that I can't start my first paragraph. Once I have that, I'm usually set.

A few DIFFERENT (yet similarly themed) first paragraphs to get the community rolling :D They're all dead short but shhhh ¬¬ There's no rule about LENGTH. *swish!* Loop-holing my own rules already XD
