Two-Fer Tuesday #10

It's Tuesday, which means another Two Fer Tuesday.  If you're not acquainted with the rules, I use a random number generator to pick a page and paragraph to pluck two sentences from.  Let's see what we get this week.

Page Number:  314
Paragraph Number: 1

This one is near the end of the Epilogue, so that's pretty cool I think.



As for the boring metal-framed bed with its olive green blanket, it became a canopy bed with an adorable pink bedspread.  Marie was no longer sitting on the bed but floating over it. 

So what's going on?  If you read my Marie Marsh post during the A to Z Challenge you might have a better idea.  Or not.


Tomorrow is Independence Day in America, but also it's the debut of a new feature!  (And BTW, as a housekeeping note, I used to post at 8:30ish EST but no one ever seems to comment before noon anyway so I'm bumping back posting times to around noon EST.  Just so you know.)

  1. I like it. Great detail and personality rolled into a couple short lines. I need to check these out more. :)

  2. When I discovered you used an epilogue, I thought that was kind of courageous as a writer. I've been hit over the head so much with "Prologues and epilogues are bad" that I'm gun shy of even trying them.

    1. For some reason I almost always use an epilogue. I suppose if they had wanted me to I could have made it a last chapter. I'm not sure there's much difference really. There of course was a prologue to this that you can read in the Deleted Scenes. Other than that only books 5 and 8 I think have a prologue.

  3. Like Michael, I keep hearing that Prologues and Epilogues are out, but I continue to see them everywhere. Besides, I like them so I use them as well.

  4. Epilogues are great. I think there should be more of them. I read Brandon Sanderson's, the Way of Kings recently and it had a prelude and a prologue and several interludes. That was hardcore.

  5. Pat, that's a great line. Starts out normal then gets crazy freaky. A real mind-bender.

  6. It is difficult to know who is reading and when. Some are in the UK, Australia, Canada, Norway, and Pacific Coast.

  7. Yep, I'm intrigued.

    I post when I post, leave it up a couple days, and don't look at the time stamp usually. I don't blog until I get off work - usually not before 6p west coast - and even on weekends and days off I don't long on until around 10a. I figure everyone is like me; getting around in their set routines.

  8. Hmm. I'm curious whether the character actually changed the surroundings--or is just imagining things. Great two sentences.

    I can never figure out when the best time is to post. I usually just put mine up when I can and hope people are checking their aggregators. :P
