Creative writing... book version!

>> Friday, October 22, 2004

As promised, here's what I got doing the book version of the game Màili put up in her blog the other day:

Rules are:

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page 50
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page 100
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page 150
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph.
8. Feel free to "cheat" to make a better paragraph.
9. Name your sources
10.Post to your blog.

My result:

Charlotte Bowen thought she was dead. Wonderful, grateful relief. She may have the Sight - present at times, absent at most- but even such a Gift could not have foretold her how important she and her prisoner were to Lord Nelson's hopes for saving England. Damn, I though. Then Camden Ruledge, the terribly solemn and oh-so-proper Earl of Treyhern, blushed three shades of red as his Great Hall erupted into a thunderous round of applause.
Books I used:

Book 1: In the Presence of the Enemy, by Elizabeth George
Book 2: By Design, by Madeline Hunter
Book 3: My Lady Pirate, by Danelle Harmon
Book 4: Season of Storms, by Susanna Kearsley
Book 5: Beauty Like the Night, by Liz Carlyle

I almost didn't have to cheat, I only moved Carlyle's book from number 4 to number 5.
