I don't have 25 fics (and if my recent drought keeps up, I never will! but, seriously, I am writing; I've just been busy with some original type stuff lately. I know, lame. But I am almost certain I'll get back to fanfic when I'm done with that), but I wanted to do the meme where you list the first line of your last 25 fics and try to find a pattern. So here are my 8. (I actually have ten but one is a series of lists so it doesn't really have first line per se and one was sort of a "training wheels" fic and I generally omit it plus it is easier to do percentages from 8 than 9.)( The first lines )
So. Three dialogue, and one note, which I guess counts as dialogue. Of the remaining four, three start with someone's
name (sorry, forgot "Sandburg" isn't a first name). I don't know what, if anything, that says about me as a person. I am struck by the way, in many cases, the first sentence would have been a better teaser/summary line than whatever I ended up choosing from the middle. In at least one case, the first line is better than the rest of the story!
