martinlivings: (Me)
Via [personal profile] angriest, [personal profile] dalekboy and [profile] tikiwanderer, we're looking at first lines of work. For this, I've decided only to include works currently in my "Under Construction" folder on my thumb drive, a lot of which I haven't actually touched or looked at in, well, years, and will probably never actually be completed. Plus the ones I have in "Working On For Publication", so we can get some slightly better lines, though they're all very much in rough draft form, so don't expect "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"!


First lines below the cut... )

Here's some more, from [profile] felicitydowker...

Reply to this meme by yelling (or any other form of writing) "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

Da words... )

Tagged by [ profile] amandapillar... I can't remember the last time anyone tagged me for one of these, so I suppose I'll have to play along. :)

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your springwinter. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

Songs below the cut... )

Now, tagging... let's say [ profile] splanky, [ profile] battblush, [ profile] azhure, [ profile] digitalduck, [ profile] catsparx, [ profile] lilysea and [ profile] angriest. :)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

Oh, [ profile] girliejones is going to love this... apologies in advance... this is page 123, sentence 5, nothing I can do about it...

But the smell of it...

His stomach lurched. He tried to hold it back, but there was no chance. He spasmed, and vomit surged up with throat and out of his mouth. It was hot and tasted of copper, and as it splattered in the bucket he realised that it was a deep red colour. There were large chunks in it, big enough to make his throat clog up as he vomited, so that a few times he thought he would choke, but then the pressure would eject the lumps, and they'd land in the bucket with a splash. He tried to cry out, but all that came was more vomit.

Carnies, Martin Livings

What? It was the closest book! :)

I'll tag, let's see, [ profile] battblush, [ profile] splanky, [ profile] digitalduck, [ profile] azhure and, yeah, [ profile] girliejones, just to see if she made it to the end of this post without running away screaming. ;)

Okay, time to invent a new meme... [ profile] angriest has declared 1999 to be the greatest single year for American cinema in our lifetime, and gave a list of films to back it up. So take the list, bold those you've seen, italicise those you own, put a star next to the ones you loved, and a cross next to the ones you disliked.

The list below the cut... )

As nicked from [ profile] splanky and all of the others! The fifty significant SF books as listed by TIME magazine, I think? Bold the ones you have read, strike through the ones you read and hated, italicize those you started but never finished and put a star next to the ones you love.

List of books below cut... )
