Cheering you all on!
Here's the place to put your first lines.

Justin's first kiss with a boy--age 13, on a dare--wasn't revolutionary or anything, but Aiden's inhibition tasted delicious on his lips.

"Leave me alone, I'm writing."

Oh, you want the first line I wrote, not the first line I said to my wife... :)

The energies focused within here aid in drawing out the power from those untrained in their talents.

(This is an already-started WIP that I'm continuing. So far I have...these 17 words to explain away a story location, plus another 69 added in later to acknowledge this addition. #motivation)

Her is embodied in a human form that appears to be a female child of nine months.

(I'm a rebel this year, so mine is also from a WIP I am continuing:)

That left about six minutes until the torpedoes intercepted—

Making her way through the under canal was not much different from walking beside the canals for Tessa.

Also on the rebel side, continuing a WIP that I'm about 10k words into:

“Kristan, what on earth are you doing?”

I recall the moment of my death, when my fingers no longer felt the chill of the air, when my skin no longer perspired sweat from the fever that had confined me to my bed, and when the flashes of light from the lightning outside my window no longer pained my weary eyes.

The first line of the first novel I started for NaNo:
Mallory tried, unsuccessfully, to push the panic down to better concentrate on getting her breathing under control as she ran.
The first line of the second novel I started for NaNo:
“C’mon, if you can’t trust your baby brother, who can you trust?”

And no, I didn't finish my first novel early and start a second one, I fell out of love with my original idea and abandoned it after about 6,000 words. Which is why I'm still behind by about 4,000 words. LOL
