With the Rapture predicted to happen this Saturday, I decided I had to at least get to the end of my sequel to EVERNEATH... EVERNEATH 2: NEVERABOVE
So, I wrote The. Final. Line.
At least if the Rapture does happen, and if I disappear sometime tomorrow, someone will be able to read The. Final. Line.
Now to write... The. Second. To. Last. Line. Without which, The. Final. Line. won't make any sense.
Of course, after the Rapture, only evil people will be left. And they'll be dealing with Armageddon. Will they have time to read a YA Romance? I say... yes. Especially if the power's out, and their house is boarded up to protect from the Zombie Apocalypse (aim for the head), and they don't want to make any noise, what else is there to do but read a book?
But my book is on the computer...
I can't share the last line, because it's way too spoilery, but I can say there are the words "trusted" and "eternity" in it.
I did show some of the discarded last lines on twitter, so I'll put them here too:
Discarded line #1: "I couldn't believe everyone was dead. I thought for sure someone would make it out of this book alive."
Discarded line #2: "I looked out into my backyard. It really was time to get out the old pooper scooper."
Discarded line #3: "Something itches."
So, what are some of your ideas for discarded last lines of your books? Or any books?
What are y'all doing this weekend? Planning for Rapture? Anyone else going to arrange some clothes on your front lawn to make it look like you... just... disappeared?
