CONTEST CLOSED. WINNER SELECTED.
The Journal Pulp is offering a $200.00 cash prize for the following:
Best first sentence for a novel about a poet truckdriver who loves the landscape almost as much as he fears the big black rig he sometimes sees in his rear-view mirror the moment before that rig vanishes.
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 carefully selected by the Journal Pulp.
The contest will be open for two weeks from today: March 22, 2012 through April 5, 2012.
If your sentence doesn’t appear in the comments after you’ve submitted, it’s almost certainly because of this overly 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.
