    Normally, I have some witty words or anecdotes for this spot, but I'm lacking time in a major way. As such, I've got a sentence that's from a book that appears to be lost in time. Enjoy!

    [blockquote]Rarely is it given man to know the day or the hour when fate intervenes in his destiny, but, because he had checked his watch just before he saw the girl with the hips, he knew the day, the hour, and the minute.--The Last Starship from Earth by John Boyd[/blockquote]

    I know that it's been a horridly long time since I've pushed a sentence up here, but there's a reason for that, mainly the simple fact that I've been obscenely busy with work--to the point that I've not even written anyt fiction in nigh upon 3 months. But enough of my woes, you're here for the new sentence!


    [blockquote]Sometimes the lies you tell are less frightening than the loneliness you might feel if you stopped telling them.[/blockquote]

    Ooh, I really like that sentence -- and the one before it. Can we use old sentences?

    This just might start my SW muse going again...

    I have an on-going fic that the newest sentence would go perfectly into. Can I use it?

    you can use the sentence (and there's no need to label the story "First Sentence" since technically, it's not the 1st sentence of the story), just if possible, note in that post that the sentence came from here and give us a bit of link love :D

    It's been a while since I darkened these hallowed halls, but here I am. I chose an older sentence which produced a angsty little number titled:

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/30196102/p1/]Who Is More Foolish?[/link]

    OC centric. Enjoy.

    Well, it was a first sentence challenge for a past sentence, I've just migrated away from this sentence thing for a while

    Another two weeks have come and gone, much to my surprise, shock and awe... the utter surprise that came over me as I recieved the notification that it was now time to do this again was amazing.... which made picking this particular sentence all that much easier....

    You see, I was watching the Princess Bride last night instead of posting the First Sentence like I should have been. So, as I was reviewing the sentences that I've not used yet, I found this one, and just knew that it had to go up next.


    So, get your proverbial pencils out, and generate me some mush ;)

    Here you go:

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/30288969/p1/]Love or Madness[/link]

    It's an exercise in brevity, and probably NOT what you were looking for. Still, enjoy!

    Finally got mine up. Not mushy. But funny. :p

    I have no idea how I came up with this but it's the sentence's fault.

    I know I usually have pithy (at least to myself) text at the start of these things, but out of the past 100 hours, I've worked nearly 80 of them. And I still have more to go, so you'll have to forgive me for not being pithy.


    So, without further ado (which means I can trudge back to work) here's the sentence


    [blockquote]As the guests began to arrive, one member of the household was conspicuously absent.[/blockquote]

    I posted a nummy vig in the NSWFF board called What If...If Only; it uses a sentence from earlier this year. [face_dancing] Link: http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_fan_fiction/b10808/30307062/p1/

    I didn't even know this was going by schedule. :p

    I was mainly just wondering because I need something to jump-start the artistic part of my brain. ;)

    Yes, the schedule is every other week on Tuesday night.

    These times where there's weeks between them, is when I fail to either get (or notice) the notification from my calendar.


    New sentence in a bit!

    Ah, the joy of reaching the END of a huge software development project. Specifically, one which the schedule is designed for a team of 3, and it ends up just being a lone programmer working on it. Therefore, I declare that this sentence must be the FINAL SENTENCE

    Then couple that with the ComicCon FotJ panel and Mr. Denning's comments during it, I felt that this sentence just was the most.... relevant.


    [blockquote]A kiss could change the world. -- The Killing of Worlds by Scott Westerfield[/blockquote]

    And remember, this is a FINAL SENTENCE
