5th & 56th – Julia’s Challenge

On 6s people would sometimes issue challenges. I don’t have any notes on this challenge, but I think it was to turn to use the fifth sentence on the fifty-sixth page of each of six books. I wrote none of the sentences myself and each is credited in order beneath the 6s flash story.

“Get away,” said Montag.

These words sound in my ears even now.

For I want arguments to stand still, to stand fixed and immovable.

“Hold on with all your might when I let go.”

The delay was maddening, absurd, the hourglass was upended.

Men are sometimes prone to judge themselves as lovers on the basis of whether they can bring their brides to sexual release during intercourse, but do not make this the supreme goal.
