Famous First Lines

“Halfway down a by-street of one of our New England towns stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables, facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst.”

Nathaniel Hawthorne had hoped to finish The House of the Seven Gables by November, but,

like many writers even today, finishing a novel on deadline can be difficult. The Witch City Writers challenges you to a speed writing event using the famous first line of Hawthorne’s novel as inspiration.

This event is $5.00 for the general public and free for members of The Gables and Witch City Writers.
