I thought this looked like fun, so I subscribed to the blog and this is my first post.
The challenge this week:
- Pick up the nearest book. (I’m sure you must have one nearby.)
- Turn to page 123.
- What is the first sentence on the page?
- The last sentence on the page?
- Now . . . connect them together….
(And no, you may not transcribe the entire page of the book–that’s cheating!)
From Page 123 of The Innocent Man by John Grisham: "He never wavered, in spite of some yelling and bullying from the cops, who said over and over that they knew Ron was guilty ... Surely they've got the wrong one."
At first, I thought this challenge was to make something up for what comes between these to sentences, but as I looked at other people's blogs I saw that they had just put the two sentences next to each other to see what kind of meaning could be gleaned from them. I was planning on still going with my original instinct, but as I'm feeling sleepy today, I've decided to take the easy way out. I think the two sentences above, together, are pretty interesting. But if you want to see a good blogger who actually wrote a story to connect her two sentences, go here.
What does you nearest book say on P. 123?
