Fun, Fee-less Fiction Contest

This is short notice, but did you know the Bulwer-Lytton fiction contest deadline is this month? This short fiction contest requires all entries to start with the cliche classic line, "It was a dark and stormy night..."

The catch: entries should only be one sentence long. Start it off with the old, then give it a new twist by the end of the sentence. That should be easy, right? Only a sentence long!

The prize? Per the website, it's merely "a pittance"... but winning a contest is winning a contest, and besides, this is a great exercise for all of us!

Check out the link above to learn more about this contest, and enter if you like. Good luck!

Ha! This sounds great! Thanks for passing it on! I wish I was cleverer in brief, but I may give it a shot anyway...
