FINISH THAT THOUGHT #35
Welcome back! I love the creativity and heart you all bring to your stories. It continually amazes me that each one of you begins with the same sentence and then takes it in an entirely unique direction. That said, this week, methinks the judge is fishin'....
If you need to read the full version of the rules, go here. Otherwise, here's the short version:
1. Up to 500 words
2. Keep it clean (nothing rated R or above)
3. Start with the given first sentence.
4. Optional Special Challenge
5. Include Twitter/email, word count, Special Challenge accepted
6. The challenge is open for 24 hours on Tuesday EST
Oh, and feel free to change pronouns, punctuation, tense, and anything in brackets to fit the story/pov/tone. I'm not going to be TOO picky... Our judge however...
Our Judge today is Mary MacFarlane also known as JM MacF. Check out her blog here. Read her winning tale from last week here!
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #35 is:
The sea, which had been glassy only an hour before, now raged with an unholy vengeance [upon the small ship].

AAAAAAAND WE'RE OFF!!!
