Hello! This is a reminder that there are two ways to submit to The Final Sentence:

  1. sending the final sentence using the Submit function 
  2. posting the final sentence on your own blog and tagging it with #submission for tfs 

Use one of the above methods to submit the final sentence of the book you just finished, of a poem you enjoyed recently, of a play you are still feeling the effects of.
