That GIF pretty much sums up my whole life. 😉 Anyways, hello!
If this is your first time seeing my blog, welcome! My name is Jasmine and I hope you like it here. If you do, you might even like to stay a while. Yes, I’m as weird and awkward as I sound so be prepared. 😛
Now that’s I’ve convinced you of my weirdness, let’s move on!
I’m back with another #1lineWed post! For those of you that don’t know, #1lineWed is- you guessed it- a hashtag on Twitter where writers from all different stages of their writing come together every week and post a line based on the theme. The theme is usually posted within a week’s time by Kiss of Death on Twitter but I normally retweet it so if you can’t find it, look on either of our feeds.
Here’s a tweet I came across while looking for lines to feature today and I loved it so much that I’m gonna share it with you. 🙂
I love things like
#1linewed bc you can find superb writers & follow them & network & learn from them & make your words stronger in return.
Today’s theme was a very simple one: “Lines from pages 6, 16, or 160”
Here were the lines I posted on my Twitter today:
She reaches her arm out slowly to touch my face. When her finger makes contact she pulls it back “How are you here?” She whispers
“I thought I would help June brush her hair since we were late, and she… kind of didn’t know and crushed her face into the sink”
I didn’t look back to see if they’re following me. In the second it would take me to turn around, they could grab me. And kill me.
If something’s on fire, the zombies yell. So loudly that you might think there’s a war. They’re clearly tired of things on fire.
“Sorry we’re late, Retta didn’t get the note from Gerard because she hit him with her car.” “Thanks for telling her, you idiot!”
He scowled at the nickname he hated “I’m not Davey Johnstone, I’m not Davey Hamilton, I’m just David Redding My name is not Davey”
I wasn’t going to look like I was hit by a bus. I would at least look like I was hit with a bicycle, but definitely not a bus.
And now for some of the lines posted by you guys! Lovely lines as always you wonderful writers! 🙂
She was lying on the white carpet, a small blood stain under her face. Blood caked her nose […]But she was breathing.
#1linewed THE GRUDGE
I towered over her. Our lips were a mere breath apart. I could feel the kiss that hadn’t yet happened as if it were a memory.
#1LineWed #1lineWed She married well,” he says like it’s some kind of accomplishment to marry money. I mean, so did Anne Boleyn. Look where it got her
Why should I get married? If I cheat, she gets half my stuff, and if she cheats, she gets half my stuff.
I certainly don’t say that the worst thing about it is, it’s my fault. I’m the reason she died.
“Have you seen my lip gloss? I—what are you wearing?” “It’s retro.” She crinkles her nose. “It’s weird.” “You’re weird.”
That’s not the last time we got in trouble together. It eventually became the glue that bound us together.
Synne grinned. It was easier to be brave when you spun your troubles into a story.
It’s one thing to dance alone in the shadows of a studio, another to pour yourself onto a stage for others to bear witness. P.60
“I think she’d be better off wrestling a velociraptor at the base of an erupting volcano than befriending your brother’s ghost.”
Quint tracked the redhead’s progress through the crowd. The rest of the world hushed; she was the only clear thing in his sights.
This was no illusion. It was actually happening. The llama and the billionaire. At her door.
.The rusty links falling like copper colored flower petals to the ground.
The other I caught full on the head. The spar stuck there, a nail embedded in his skull. He went down like a log, twitching.
Those words which came to me so readily and adeptly in my daydreams dissipate like a vapor in the cold reality.
“You didn’t even tell them who you are?” “My name isn’t who I am. Not anymore.”
Sugar expected to be underwhelmed, but the man draped over the adjacent bar stool made him swoon, and Sugar swooned for no one.
