Opening Lines

Add an opening line to the following photo.

Thanks once again to Bill Carito for being “the hand.”

Julie: Now, if they’d used the common sense that the good lord gave a goose, they would have bolted the door. But no, they didn’t want to get up and answer the door when their friends arrived.

Edith: “Gimme the knife, quick,” he whispered. “She’s got me by the back of the shirt!”

Barb: The hand model auditions were going terribly.

Jessie: After a recent spate of fires hotel management implemented an unorthodox, some might say excessive, new guest safety education program. The simple solution was for someone to call their attention to the evacuation plan mounted on door.

Sherry: The magician’s disappearing act wasn’t going as planned.  This is the last time he was going to use his mother-in-law to book his shows.


Readers: Give us your opening line for a story based on this photo, or just say “hi” to be entered to win a hardcopy of Barb’s first published mystery, The Death of an Ambitious Woman. The giveaway is open to all geographies.
