Championship Writing

The winners of this year’s Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest have been announced.

From the “miscellaneous” category, a runner-up:

“Please Jeffrey, don’t tell him this time” a beautiful woman, with eyes like cobalt fire, implored of me as she staggered obviously a bit tipsy, if not completely obliterated, out of the Wagon Wheel Tavern and onto West Fourth Street and blinking twice from the afternoon sun managed to slink past me and into the arms of a fellow who I’m guessing was Jeffrey.

This is an annual contest where the object is “to submit bad opening sentences to imaginary novels.”

Well worth your time, I suggest.
