The View from Up Here

The challenge for the next issue of The First Line is up and while a little banal still has me thinking:

"The view from up here is incredible and makes me feel ________________."

Up where? Feel what? In case you're not familiar with the premise of The First Line, the editors say:

But what if authors had to share first lines? The purpose of this magazine is to celebrate the first line. ... How many different directions can we go in when we start from the same place?

In these times the possibilities seem espacially poignant.

What's the view from where you are?

Postscript: Best of the Comments

--from Pete:
It's a nice idea. More serious than http://www.bulwer-lytton.com/, though!

--Lisa replied:
I've had a few stories published in this one. It's a nice little market, and a fun writing challenge.

And I agree: Bulwer-Lytton is a hoot.
