Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.


1. "Romana, when I said that you'd be the death of us all, I wasn't trying to make a prediction!"
2. "I'm not even sure that would work," Fred muttered nervously. "Wouldn't he just stand up again like some sort of Oxbridge-educated British Rasputin?"

6. "AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRHHHHH -- you know, you have the most dreadfully cold hands. There's nothing worse than being tortured by someone with dreadfully cold hands. Can't you get a pair of mittens or... or some gloves or something? Your fingers are really dreadfully cold."
7. He couldn’t stand doors that went ‘whoosh’.

9. He only knew that it seemed to him that a weight that had been resting heavily in his chest had now been lifted, though the hole it left behind made him wonder if he did not prefer the weight after all.
10. Of course he's in Wales; he can't think of many places in the universe where one would be soaking wet after a minute's worth of walking while trying desperately not to speedily evolve into something more suited to water, but Wales was certainly unique in its climate.
11. And he wonders, as he does every morning, if she knows her fingertips are more calloused than they used to be.
12. He glared at the sky for a moment and considered the benefits of shaking his fist at it.
13. She's three inches taller than him and he hates her almost immediately.
14. "Well then what more proof do you want? You obviously don't even want to drive your own fucking car, but it's too late now, isn't it?"
15. "It's a cliff."

I actually have approx. fifty bajillion more but I will stop there.
