The Best Sentences from The Fiction Project

"Black smoke trickled from their noses and mouths as they breathed, slowly at first then combusting into a desimbodied freight train that chugged from the lungs of each doppleganger, filling the room with thick clouds of tar."

Glad you liked that one, it was one of my prouder moments on the board as well

Meanwhile, this is one of my favourite passages:

"Seperation anxiety was ubiquitous as skin."

and

"Two hours later, he emerged from the clinic to find the sky painted with autumn twilight. He paused to find a cigarette, pop it in his mouth and light it against the cool evening breeze. He took a deep drag and looked up to see the first star winking in the deepening darkness. "

"Transparent" - masterofNone

I also love this one:

"It was rather Kafka-esque, Arthur realized; almost like the evening he tried to make love to his wife, only to realize that she was a hat."

"Arthur Is Dead" - MtBikerMike

"The glowing coals of fireside warmth surround.
Each shadow dances chased ‘way by the flame.
Ascending embers, raised by heat unbound,
create a burning my heart cannot tame."

whew.

"A brief encounter with a drunken old lady's handbag shown puffy and purple over Leah's left eye. Even now, laying in her mattress on the kitchen floor she could feel a mess of throbbing only a nice slab of sirloin could remedy."

me - Transparent 2

It could very well be a crap line, but it was an inspired moment of a crap line.

again, not from The Fiction Project...

...but this *must* be commented on:

In answer to the question in "Lapietra's Highly Invasive Xmas Eve Questions (patent pending)" (Chit chat):

9. Most memorable party you've ever attended or thrown?

Dinzdale:
A long lanquid afternoon, started as lunch at the Ritz in London, returning home 2 days later, penniless and my black suit a total mess.
