WordPress Prompt #73: Grab the nearest book (or website) to you right now. Jump to paragraph 3, second Sentence. Write it in a post.
Bonus: Make up a sentence to follow the first one, but make it go in an entirely different direction that the actual book or website does.
“”Sometimes we play catch in the backyard, which is really fun and cool.”
And my bonus line is:
He doesn’t know that every night I dream of raising my bat over his sleeping head and putting some goddamned power into it like a son would.
Wouldn’t you know I’d pick a line in a paragraph that was already written to to convey an evil character as a good man. I considered cheating and quoting from paragraph four which would have been much easier to play with. But, I couldn’t. What would be the point of doing the exercise that way? So, on this lovely St. Patrick’s Day morning, you get a glimpse of my dark side. I hope my friend, Jonathan Maberry, is proud of the influence he sees represented here.
