Think Kit Day One: First Line

January 3, 2016 By Tom

1So, I’m doing this whole Think Kit daily blogging prompt for the month of January.  Every morning SmallBox and their Think Kit concept emails a new blog topic and the goal is to write about it. I did this back in 2013 right in the midst of the divorce, and I found the creative energy created by ThinkIt was awesome to get my head out of the sand. This time around, with the crazy life of work…I’m going to use Think Kit to get over my writing rut.

This post is part of Think Kit by SmallBox, today’s prompt: “Pretend you’re writing your autobiography. Give us your first line, a first chapter, or even just an image. What’s the story of you?

The story hasn’t even begun, and the best is yet to come.

What I’ve built, what I’ve created, what I’ve envisioned, you’ve just seen the beginning.

I’ve been in the corner, I’ve been down and out, but it was a mistake to think I wouldn’t rebound.

It’s a chip on my shoulder, it’s a fire in my soul, it’s my goal to change this town for the good of us all.
