Night #1LineWed



If you’re on Twitter you might have heard about #1LineWed, a Twitter Chat that happens every Wednesday. Each week there’s a new theme. Kiss of Death @RWAKISSOFDEATH announces the theme a few days before. You search your current WIP for the theme and share a line (or up to 140 characters). This post was inspired by #1LineWed with the theme of Night.


Check out the Night lines from Seismic Crimes:

-       He found himself dreaming of avenging his brother during the dark of the night and in the silence of morning.

-       The halo of light it created didn’t help to lessen the darkness of the night; it punctuated the gloom.

-       He smiled sinisterly. “Meaning I know what hotel he sleeps in at night.”

-       Buildings rose up around them, magical and romantic in the night with squares of light like stars spotting the tall structures.

-       The elevator whisked them up and broke into the night sky, granting them a bird’s eye view of the cityscape.

-       “They better be found by nightfall. I don’t want a dead detective’s little brother and some b**** bringing down everything I’ve created.”

-       She had stayed stitched to his side the entire night, and she had more of an effect on him than the pain medication the nurses had given him.

-       Then she unwound the wrap holding his ribs, revealing a pattern of bruises like red and purple fireworks in the night sky.

-       The nightmare that started with Hurricane Sabrina’s arrival was finally over.

  2. I haven't participated in this on Twitter; sounds fun though. I don't do much on Twitter, so little time :) I like the first line that you listed here as my favorite line.

    1. #1linewed happened today. If you search for that, you'll see all of the tweets that went on today. It's a lot of fun. :)

  8. Never heard of #1linewed. I'll have to check it out. Of course, my problem is I can't actually access my Twitter feed on my phone anymore. At least, not when I'm home and on my WiFi. If I'm off WiFi, it works just fine. (I know, strange.)

    But I'm on my computer right now, so I'll go and check it out.

    1. That is strange! Have you talked to your cable company about that?

      I think you'll like it, Liz. :)

  9. No, I hadn't heard of it Chrys, but there's just so much going on with twitter, can't join in everything, but this one sounds useful.

    My favourite from your lines:

    Buildings rose up around them, magical and romantic in the night with squares of light like stars spotting the tall structures.

      I'm glad you like that line. :)

    I loved "she stayed stitched by his side." :)

  12. I do not do twitter. Tried it and it drove me nuts. I like that last line. Great writing all around

  13. Hi human, Chrys,

    While my ridiculous human continues to absent in the blogging world, I thought I'd take over. Oh, you never noticed his absence!

    Ah yes, shall check out the hashtag. It'll be right up there with #arf.

    I like line number 5 in your list. Of course, me being a British dog, I use the word, "lift", instead of elevator.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny!

    1. It's true I haven't stopped in at your blog. I've actually gave been stepping back a lot, aside from posting.

      Lift is a good word for elevator because that's what they do! :D

  14. I've seen #1LineWed but I've never done it. I like you putting a theme to it. My favorite one is the second to last line. It produces a vivid image.

  15. I was doing #1LineWed for awhile, but for some reason forgot about it.

    I think I like your second line best. It's very romantic and poetic.

    1. I've forgotten about it lately, too, but that's because I've been too busy to remember.

      Thanks! :)

  17. I like the dark of the night and silence of the morning, it drew me right in. I get far too confused with Twitter!

  20. No, but my favorite line "dark of the night and silence of the morning"

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've never done this. I may have to look into it. But then again, looking at my own WIP, I don't have anything real exciting to offer. I only found this one, "I don't see her. I hope she's not avoiding me after last night."

    As for he ones above, I like this one: The nightmare that started with Hurricane Sabrina’s arrival was finally over.

    1. The themes for #1linewed can be anything. Sometimes its a hook, sometimes it's for a word, or similes. Anything. :)
