My reading material often goes from fiction to nonfiction as I like to keep a mix of ideas going to stir up my creativity for my WIPs. Two recently read sentences are from You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe by Christopher Potter, a book I will be preparing a review for in the near future: “As children we soon become aware that the universe must be a strange place. I used to keep myself awake at night trying to imagine what lay beyond the edge of the universe.”
An interesting thing about studying the nothing in the universe is that it does contain matter.
Three recently written sentences from my second very draft dark fantasy manuscript WIP, Keeper 2, are: “The path was narrower still, maybe two feet wide, with a large gap of vacant space. The group moved carefully forward, taking the harrowing step across in turn.
"Maggie’s foot dislodged some pebbles that rolled down the rock and off the edge; she listened but heard nothing of their eventual landing.”
