Cheering you all on!
You know you want to post the line that started it all!

Mine
:

I'd spent an inordinate amount of time contemplating the shape of Jie's lips when the girl fell out of the sky.

[My 'NaNo' is really trying to finish up a novel I've already been working on. It's about 40K in, and another 50K would get it well done, I think. So this is actually the first line of Chapter 10 rather than the first line entirely.]

Owen knew he had a restless nature; on most days, he preferred to be out in the field, talking to people and going over crime scenes rather than doing data analysis back at the office.

Similar to Pyrephox my goal is to add 50,ooo words to my current WIP during NaNoWriMo. So here is the first line of Chapter 13 written today.

It hadn’t even been a full week of battling the Hellsna and my hover craft had nearly as many dings as my thick skin.

I'm using nano to edit the 7k of a novel I started last year and bolster it to a sizable chunk. Day one consisted of padding and editing the original 7k into 9k of combined new and old material then totally new content tomorrow.

The first line of my NaNo project was:

"A barrage of uneven snores filled the one-room office."
