this is me

O, writing! O, talent! Where art thou?

1. Take five books off your bookshelf. [Or on your desk, for the lazy]
2. Book #1 - first sentence
3. Book #2 - last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 - second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 - next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 - final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph in consecutive order:

Alicia was irked, not exactly a rare event. "Meanwhile, take your sister and gather stuff from the trailer. There has been one lady," he said, "who claims to have dreamed the crimes. Just not the way she planned." And we headed off into the west.

That did not work as well as I had hoped it would.
