The Journal Pulp is offering a $100.00 cash prize for the following:
Best first sentence for a novel about a lovely librarian who secretly burns the books she loves because she wants no one else to read them.
Rules and guidelines:
No outrageous run-ons. You can submit anonymously or under your real name, it doesn’t matter.
No minimum length requirement.
Submit as many separate entries as you’d like.
Leave your sentence in the comments section below.
The winner will be selected by the Journal Pulp.
The contest will be open for two weeks from today: March, 21st, 2013, through April 4th, 2013, at midnight.
If your sentence doesn’t appear in the comments after you’ve submitted, it’s almost certainly because of this aggressive SPAM filter. Please note that I check the SPAM folder carefully and regularly, and that your sentence, if it’s not SPAM, will be approved. I do not censor.
