First Line Friday: January 15th, 2021

It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Jim’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.

I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. No need to tie it to the picture, unless you want to.

Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!

Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction. Create a link (ping-back) to this post and add your link to Mister Linky below.

Your line for this week is:

Gigi assembled her planners, her calendars, her pens, pouches, and post-its before her on the desk and stood over them like a general surveying maps. “Now all I need to do is find a place for all this stuff. I am tired of it all piled up all over the desk. I have two staplers and three rolls of tape. I have to stop buying things I can’t find. Everything needs a home,” said to her husband.

She separated everything into piles, like with like and what needs to go together when used. She decided how to store every item and went to the container store to get the appropriate containers to hold everything so it was all neat and tidy.

Now all she needs is an idea to start writing her new book about. Her space is neat and tidy and her mind is blank.

Today some more brain tickling thought provokers …

Do you ever simply stop and wonder ‘Where has time gone to?’ or is it something that never bothers you? Yes and sometimes I swear the time goes faster the older I get.
If you had a warning label, what would yours read? Mood Swings! Look Out!!
What fact amazes you every time you think of it? How fast time is flying by. My baby is 33, but my oldest child is 43. My oldest grandchild is 23 and my youngest is 1 year old. It seems just like yesterday that I had my first child and that I had gotten married just a few year before my first child appeared and then 23 years later I got divorced and the biggie is that I have no been divorced 21 years. It doesn’t seem possible.
What kind of activities do you enjoy doing and what would you never do? I love to write and read. I would never scuba dive or jump out of a plane. Or go on a safari with jungle animals.
