The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Another blog meme, thanks to Profgrrrrl:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

The sentence:

When your brain has checked out and neglected to leave a forwarding address,
and it's all you can do to get the food from the dinner plate to your mouth
before you collapse, asleep, at the table.

The book: No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days
