Jumping Off Places - Week Two

Just 'jump right in!' (when it comes to our writing). Our first week was very interesting, to see what each writer/blogger chose as their jumping off place! Today I'll provide a new list of first lines for you to write about next week. If you have written something for week two, please drop down to the link part of this post and add your name and your URL so we will all be able to read your creativeness! A review of it works: 1) First Lines provided here. 2) Write a post on your blog using the first line of your choice. It doesn't have to be long, just a few thoughts or a paragraph. Anything. Who knows, it could become a story! 3) Take your time--One Week--then come back next Friday and link in! 4) On Friday's we'll read each other's work and Enjoy! First Lines for Week THREE: 1) As he sauntered down the hall, he dropped each page one at a time. 2) A man in a pin striped suit with a bright blue paisley tie, walked thru the lobby and pushed the elevator button to the penthouse. 3) The texture of the fabric was intoxicating, I knew it was expensive. 4) It was bright this morning, the first sun shinny day of this week. 5) Two glittering little eyes shined out of the hole in the baseboard at me and . . . Happy CREATIVE writing! Don't forget to come back and link in! Note: I'm having a bit of trouble with the html and it looks like last weeks posts are listed from 1-4 I will try to get that fixed, but go ahead and link in anyway. Thanks!

The first link listed takes you to last week's post so I have added my link for this week.

Sorry, Marlene. I'm having a bit of trouble with the html code for the link, I don't know why it printed last weeks links. Anyway, trying to get it fixed. Thanks for posting. Mine will be up in a few minutes.

i linked in but i don't really know how the link thing works so here's my entry...i chose starting line 1.

She was sitting, all crouched down, in the corner of the room, staring at the sidewall. The sun peeked through the lace curtains and she pounced, leaping into in action. As the sunlight danced across the wall the adventure of chasing light flashes began for the small but very capable kitten. Convinced she had trapped the small beam beneath her paw she would stand on her hind legs holding her position without wavering. Then without warning a flicker of light would appear inches from where her prey was being held and a new hunt ensued.
