Frankenstein is a writer’s game wherein a story is composed of sentences contributed by different authors. We play this game a lot in Book Junkies, and everyone has a lot of fun with it.
So, I’ll kick it off with a prompt sentence, then you guys each add a sentence in the comment thread. Each subsequent sentence should feed off the sentence before it in the thread. So, let’s see what monster of a story we can stitch together.
One note though: PG-13 type blog—keep it clever but clean.

Not especially. I’m getting paid to do something I love. It keeps me in organic produce, which makes me happy. If I do a good job, I might be hired again, so I can buy more organic produce, which will make me happier. Besides, the writing I do under my own name give me gratification and portfolio to spare.
