Novel Kicks Writing Room: From The First To The Last

Novel Kicks Writing RoomWhen you first decide to write a book, we are told that beginnings and endings are important but how you get from one to the other is what keeps a reader interested.

For today’s exercise, use the following line to start (or use one from one of your favourite novels.)

“From the beginning, she was in love with him.”

Write it at the top of the page.

Then, write the following last line at the bottom of the page;

“She couldn’t move. She just continued to hold the knife.”

(Again, feel free to use an ending from a favourite novel as long as it’s different to the one the first line came from.)

Using about 1,500 words, fill in the middle from your first line to the last.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
