A Friendly Reminder This First Line Friday. There Are Three Sides To Every Story: Yours, Mine And The Truth

With the second half of 2020 about to find new and fun ways to wreak havoc on the world, I thought we should brush up on some fundamental advice about who's telling the truth.

First Line Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for readers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, author, or prestige. We try to hook Readers by the first line, instead?

Psst, I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

Rules:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first.

Goodbye To The Longest Six Months EVER

The First Six Months of 2020 are over and while I would love to celebrate. I am NOT going tempting the fates. The second-half of 2020 has already canceled My Chemical Romance, has its first super-spreader event on land that doesn’t belong to the United States, just to the north of Colorado, AND the threat of yet another pandemic just around the corner (and if you think that one would be handled any different by President It’s Just going to Disappear?

Only July isn’t Gerard dramatic. It is serious and has jumped the shark from its past six-months of predecessors. Rather than just being blind ass drunk. July has ditched alcohol and is going straight for the crack. Buckle up!


First Line(s) Friday

With that in mind, I thought I would start-off the second-half 20 “It’s been a blur. I don’t know how I’m alive, but I need a new bingo card.” 20 with a friendly reminder. There are at least three sides to every story: yours, mine, and the truth. That means that fundamentally, someone is always lying. Here is this week’s First Line(s) Friday:

It wasn’t love at first sight.

I can admit that now. But by the end, I loved her more than I thought it was possible to love another human being. I cared about her more than I ever cared about myself. That’s why I did it. Why I had to. I think it’s important that people know that, when they find out what I’ve done. If they do. Perhaps then they might understand that I did it for her.
