Mini-Mini Challenge: Paragraph

  • Take your current read and pick one sentence from three of the following pages:  page 1, page 77, page 179, page 255, page 360, or one from the 5th page from the end
  • Take the three sentences and make them into a short paragraph.  If it makes sense as is, fine.  If not, you can add your own words or sentences to make it romantic, funny, scary…whatever.
  • Be sure to bold and/or italicize the original text from the book or, if you leave it in the comments, put quotes around the original text.

My current read is Autumn: Disintegration…  here goes:

I found her a couple of days later when she’d just started to move,” he said.  Jas almost allowed himself to think about the body of the child again before he struck the match; almost, but not quite. “The bodies are falling apart.  They’re going to be become less of a problem, not more,” Ginnie said, helped herself to more food.
