It is First Line Friday, welcome and let’s get writing.
Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Jim’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.
I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. No need to tie it to the picture, unless you want to.
Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!
“Only the elders remembered a blue sky. When they were young, most people thought the idea of climate change was a conspiracy by certain groups of scientists with a secret agenda. What this could possibly have been is still a mystery. Years of selfish neglect and taking our world for granted has resulted in this predicament. Now you children suffer the consequences of their foolishness.”
