So there's a couple of memes that I decided to edit into this: I'm going to post the first lines of all my WIP that have a complete draft but not a revision I like yet. Now to just get some edited!

"You have seven days. Live them."

Breath. Artisan's Breath
Alya carefully creased speckless cream linen over the perfect white parchment of her letter—the way her mother taught her.
Kingdoms and Thorn. Dowse and Bleed
Rachelle waited until the restless aches dancing through her upper body were outright pain before she finally forced herself to quit making endless cups of coffee and fished a mottled green star out of the embossed pink tin she kept on the granite kitchen countertop.
Kirana pressed her hand tightly to the young boy's chest, her own chest feeling squeezed as life wrung out from between her fingers and into his body.
Kingdoms and Thorn. [ Teller's Story ]
Word came at dawn of the newly outfitted military station in Westerfields, that vast uninhabited territory between Glaston and Edyll, both kingdoms cities.
Faeology. Edge of Salvation, Edge of Fear (expanded)
