One of my favorite fiction writing people, Mary Robinette Kowal, has a fun meme on her blog called First Lines. You can see all the first lines of the first blog entries from her blog in 2009 here.
Here are mine. (Mary's are, as always, more interesting.)
January: Despite their father growing up in Wisconsin, my three kids (11,12,13) had never seen snow until this past Monday.
February: This year, the TPC of Scottsdale built the first fully-enclosed stadium around the infamous 16th hole for the FBR Open (read Phoenix Open).
March: If you have been following this blog, you know that I was a victim of Reduction in Force back in January.
April: This is a bonus edition of the Novy Mirror. (Note: This entry was a cross-post from blip.tv. The first line I wrote myself to the blog in April was this: Okay. I see blip.tv did, indeed, crosspost to my blog.)
May: A long time ago, David Gerrold wrote an episode for Star Trek-The Next Generation.
June: Just found out that my novelette, "Winter," slated to be released with a reprint of my short story "The Adjoa Gambit" was pushed back again.
July: So far, Westercon has been a blast.
August: Michelle M. Welch is a Phoenix area writer who has written several novels.
September: Okay, so shoot me because it's been a week since I posted.
October: Cool video of the Lunar Impact mission.
November: The Theme and Variation audio anthology went live last week.
December: Wow, suddenly a month goes by and I haven't posted.
