Last Line Challenge

As some of you may know, I have a very unique writing style as evidenced in the article “Let’s Start at the Ending” – which you can read here: I also have a tendency to write dark, sometimes erotic, stories – Just read my short story Serenity. Anyway, I am offering a challenge to anyone willing to participate. I challenge you to write a short story inspired by the last line of a movie. Below are some examples but feel free to use one of your own. The most interesting, funny, sexy or spooky will be posted on my blog for a week. Be as creative as possible but remember- no torture porn or excessive blood and guts.

“Let Me Sleep” –Insomnia

“You met me at a very strange time in my life”- Fight Club

“Now , where was I?”- Memento

‘Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.”- The Matrix

“Hang on Lads, I have a great idea”- The Italian Job

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that… he is gone.” –The Usual Suspects

“I’m da boss, I’m da boss.”- Ragging Bull

“I’m not even gonna swat that fly. I hope they are watching. They’ll see. They’ll see and they’ll know and they’ll say, ‘Why, she wouldn’t even harm a fly’…” Psycho

“I was cured alright”- A Clockwork Orange

“The horror, the horror”- Apocalypse Now

“Still, things won’t ever be the way they were before he came. But that’s alright because if you hang onto the past you die a little every day. And for myself, I know I’d rather live.” Cape Fear

“You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry: you will someday”- American Beauty

“Oh yes, I believe in friends. I believe we need them, but if one day you find that you just can’t trust them anymore then what then? What then?”- Shallow Grave

“And no matter what they did to build this city back up again … for the rest of time … it would be like nobody even knew we was ever here.”- Gangs of New York

“Baby, you’re gonna miss that plane”- Before Sunset

“This place makes me wonder… Which would be worse, to live as a monster, or to die as a good man”- Shutter Island
