First Chapter/First Paragraph

Chapter 1 – Day 1

I forget everything between footsteps.

“Anna!” I finish shouting, snapping my mouth shut in surprise.

My mind has gone blank. I don’t know who Anna is or why I’m calling her name. I don’t even know how I got here. I’m standing in a forest, shielding my eyes from the spitting rain. My heart’s thumping, I reek of sweat, and my legs are shaking. I must have been running, but I can’t remember why.

    1. No judgement here – it is not the easiest book to keep track of. Some bloggers encouraged note taking so I took that to heart. It is really helping me to keep track of things.
