    Cool I earned an Honourable Mention ...


    I've made it as a serious writer! I gained an honourable mention in my first attempt at the Lyttle Lytton contest, for the worst opening line to a book.

    Link (my entry is the third one down).

    A bit disappointed to miss out on first place, but I shall return next year, twice as strong!

    So, you're good at bad writing? Seriously, good job.

    in whom there is no salvation."

    Timely, isn't it?

    Hey, third is not bad for being bad - congratulations!
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    Yes, it was a tough field. I've got 12 months to consider my next effort, though.

    Perhaps other WF members will be inspired to take up the mantle of awfulness?

    Being bad is SOOOOO good! Congratulations Harrrper!
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    love leaves a memory no one can steal....
