Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it the first sentence of your post.
(suggested by Spencer York)
“Unexpected obstacle.” My first thought was I do not really have a favorite book. Then I decided on a title and turned to the first page. There was no place to go with that. Like Melville’s Moby Dick it made mention of the major character. So with that ‘unexpected obstacle’ I decided to stick with the same author but to switch novels. So “Unexpected obstacle.” is not the first sentence of my favorite book but it is from a novel by one of my favorite authors. Come back tomorrow and I will reveal more. (Cheap trick?) Meanwhile if you have the novel and/or author figured out please leave a comment.
