First Sentence Assigment: Extreme

My Friends,

Thanks for all your comments about my decision to stop writing Ice Mountain. As someone in my life had said: "You can't beat a dead horse." Well...I think you can, but it'll get you nowhere. Trust me...I've tried. :-) Just kidding.
Anyhoo. Here's a long time coming first sentence assignment. For those of you who have not seen or heard of this little fun writing exercise, here's how we roll:
I provide a First Sentence...and you take it from there. Write a story that's 2,000 words or less. This time how ever I want all of you to push the envelope, if you dare. Take risks, let go. That simple. Okay, here goes:

"Black, like charred bacon, I saw what no one should ever see."

Hope you can make something of that. I will. The deadline is September 9th. Ah yes, I could have said the 11th, but I'm not that cold hearted. Send me your links or let me know here when you are done or if you'll participating and I'll post you up on the this blog. I really hope all of you can give it a try. It's been a long time...

Later.

I'm not going to have time to respond to this challenge, Lucas, but good luck with it.

Hey dude - been going through some stuff and it's kept me from writing much. I'm just treading water at the moment until I can get my brain re-engaged.

Good luck with this challenge - maybe I'll be ready to write again when the next one comes around.

Charles, I'm sorry you couldn't try your magical hand at this, but that's cool. I never get enough time for much either. Thanks for stoppin by, buddy!

Travis, that's fine. I just hope you come by and see the story I come up with. I'm working on something now, but it's going to be posted after teh deadline. Sooo busy these days. Thanks for stoppin!

Etain, YEAH! You better come up with something! I'm really looking forward to reading more of your work. And with this first sentence, I hope it sparks something for you. I'm doing well, we just bought a new house and moved in last week. I got new job working for John Deere, and I've been pulling my hair out becasue there isn't enough time in a day to write anymore! And I haven't had time to check up on all my feathery friends lately. I'm going nuts! Other than that...I'm good. And I hope you have a great week yourself, hope it will be bright and full of honey...

Later.
