Prompt - use a random paragraph from a book you've not read.
The opening paragraph is from one of my husbands Eric Lustbader books “ Angel Eyes.” found on page 303 - picked at random. Despite the front cover promising that the book is a mesmerising thriller, I’ve never made it past page 4 of a Lustbader book and have no idea what this one is even about. I am sure Lustbader would have a fit if he know what I had done to his characters.

A little ambitious as WAs FF is to be a first draft with no editing - and MAs FF is meant to be a polished piece.... so my compromise is that I write is out and go back and fix obvious spelling, gramatical and functional language errors.. and leave it at that....(praying that my story is good enough that it will bear the critics eye.)
