Over the years,
we've found that ending a story is almost as hard as starting
one. All too often we receive wonderful tales that have one
more sentence or paragraph than needed, and we've kicked around
the idea of doing an issue of The First Line where
we flip the script and give you the last line.
But why just one issue? Why not a whole new journal? Well,
your wish is our command. If you would like to play along,
here's the next last line:
was a man of his word.
Due date: October 1, 2017

The issue will
be published in December, and all print and pdf subscribers
of The First Line will receive a free copy.
