music: the wailin' jennys ~ heaven when we're home

I keep seeing that 'WiP title and first line' meme around on my friends list. My first reaction was, "Like I need to play with more works-in-progress..." But after taking a second look, I realized I have a few that are shareable.

Excluding my long-running (should that be 'half-published?' oh dear) works-in-progress, here are a few:

The Comeback Kid (The Lone Gunmen): Even after all this time, Jimmy still got the yips.

Riddles of the Sphinx (Harry Potter): Albus had eyes on her, even here. How maddening.

Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter (Star Wars EU): It only took two days for Mara to decide that she really hated Bowre.

Conception (SG-1): The Book of Origin taught that children were to respect, revere and, inevitably, replace their parents.

The Suicide Blondes Book Club (Veronica Mars): Let's face it, the blonde cheerleader is always the first one to die.

The Pharaoh's Daughter [working title] (Harry Potter): Helga was born from the river, a child of rushes and weeds.

Really excited about a bunch of your WiP (and impressed that you have so many!), especially "The Comeback Kid"!

Oh, I always have a ton of ideas. Execution is what trips me up. ;)

I <3 The Comeback Kid. I actually wrote it as a script a couple years ago when I was taking a TV script writing class and practicing on 'fake' spec scripts. I keep meaning to put it into story form and post it, and it looks like I'm finally getting around to it!
