Exercise #398: Beginning Line
Posted 12/10/10

It hasn’t been all that long since the last Beginning Line exercise, but my husband supplied this one and I’ve been amused by it for days.

Use this as the beginning line for your SUB:

“I think I need a squeegee.”

Critiquers, along with the usual critique points, you might also note how well the story flows with the beginning line.

Word limit: 1200
