My calling?

I never hear about this until it's too late to enter.  They really should have a direct link from the NaNoWriMo website.  I'm sure I had something at least as bad in my novel.

Seriously though, I doubt I could be this entertaining.  This stuff takes real talent.


  1. I didn't realise this was a real competition. There was a recent documentary about opening lines of novels (good and bad!) on BBC Radio 4 only last week. Just had a look on iPlayer but can't spot it. Maybe it was more than a week ago. Aha... 10 minutes later... found it: Click to go to the page where you can listen

  2. That was very interesting and entertaining. It seems to me the weight he was putting on the opening line he needed to write the novel first and then sum it up there. Now after the Bulwer-Lytton scholar told about the famous line I want to read that novel.


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
