I’m starting a new category to intersperse with letters to myself, which I’m calling sentence snippets!
I’ve mentioned previously that the way I get a lot of my ideas is by looking at random things and thinking, “what if?” Sometimes, I push for these thoughts because I’m bored or trying to come up with new concepts or don’t want to too closely mimic something I find cool.
Sometimes, fun introductory (or completely out-of-context) sentences come from these exploratory adventures.
Therefore, I’ve decided to catalogue them there, at least for now! No explanation. No preamble (except in this post, of course), no context. Your imagination will likely derive a completely different yet equally beautiful story from a single line of text than the one mine did.
Therefore, I here present my first sentence snippet:

In this instance, she was fortunate to have had the message drilled into her head by her grandfather.
