Six Sentence Sunday - Opening lines

 This is an idea I've toyed with. Not actually a WIP. At least not yet. Sometimes I write the opening for a story idea that intrigues me and that's what this is.




"You're going to meet the man of your dreams real soon, dear."

Skylor hoped it was a pep talk; one of those "don't give up on love" spiels people were prone to when you were getting divorced.

"It could be any time, but it will definitely be soon."

Oh, no! Pep talks never included "definite" time frames.

"Have you been calling the Psychic Network again, Mom?"


Would this appeal to you?

  3. Like that it was the mum who was 'fortune-telling' lol. I think if you gave the story a twist in some way, it would definitely appeal to me.

  10. I'd definitely keep reading, especially if her mother really had been calling the Psychic Network and their predictions started coming true.

  11. Well, Sandy, this is a romance, so this prediction at least is going to come true. :)

    Is a twist that the man she'll meet has a touch of the second sight himself? Not that he'll tell her that right away.

    Thanks all for the feedback. This is definitely in the planning stage.
