‘This’ is a word.

This is a sentence.

This is a hastily added and badly thought out third line because things always look better in lists of three.


This is a sigh because the writings not over.

This is a filler line because middle lines are tough.

This is an accidentally rhyming line, which makes my planning look rough.


This is a line to signify the beginning of the end of the piece.

This is a line to ease the dramatic tension I’ve accidentally built up.

This is a long line because I just realised that in the previous two examples the last line was longer the previous two, so I stretched this one out despite not really having much to say.
