Just one Line.

A Literotica style take on the popular twitter writing tag '1lineWednesday'

Pretty simple. Post one sentence of line from a story you've published or a current project.

"You're a ghost story, Black," Abigail sneered. "And not a particularly frightening one."

If you, gentle reader, are reading these passages, it can only be because more latitude is allowed to authors than was possible to me.

Trish laughed, “Don't give me that! Of course he's your guy. You two want each other like peanut butter wants jelly.”

"You see, Lydia?" Seth gestured towards the still smoking corpse on the floor. "This is why we can't have nice things."

“What is it?” I asked as Mario came close to me after we’d been shown to the table on the terrace of the Ciro’ Restaurant overlooking the Marina Piccola—the little harbor—on the Italian island of Capri.

That line doesn't even need much story wrapped around it!

There's an author here named Tammy Trueheart-well not here any more, hasn't posted in years, but in one of her stories she had a line that caught me totally off guard and had me laughing in the middle of reading a gang bang scene.

"I was taking more balls off my chin than Mike Piazza."

There were GOOD pirates (Hurrah! Wave Jolly Roger) who fought the Spanish enemy (Boo!) and BAD pirates (Boo!) who robbed, raped (but this word was NEVER explained) and pillaged until they met the GOOD pirates (Hurrah! Wave Jolly Roger) or the BRITISH NAVY (Three Cheers! and wave Union Jack) and were sunk (with all hands) to the watery grave they deserved.

Something in the air changed ever so slightly and that had begun the dance that led to today.

Hack Writer: Good, Bad, Or Ugly

From what I read hack writers are hookers and short order cooks and taxi drivers. So what?

Not to mention the fact that an ex-coffin-mate and witch named Baba Yaga had cursed him with a goat’s head 1733 years ago for drinking an entire barrel of elder blood that she was saving to make sausage.

So I put the bottle on his desk and said, “No I didn’t pee in it, it’s apple juice like I said ‘'cause that’s what my Grammy always said was the best thing, ‘cept she said apple cider but Eddie didn’t have no cider and I never heard of that shnops stuff but it sounded too much like snot and stuff so I got apple juice and heated it up in the microwave with the cap off so it wouldn’t ‘splode but the label melted and looked ickey and stuff so I took it off.”

She cried out, as another blast of lightning ripped through us, our bodies tensed and frozen as nerves jangled from the mix of electricity from rapture and nature.
