First Paragraph Contest!

Nathan Bransford is hosting The Fourth Sort-of-Annual Stupendously Ultimate First Paragraph Challenge.The idea is to submit the opening paragraph of one of your works-in-progress. It closes tomorrow (Thursday) at 4 PM Pacific Time. Check the post for information on the prizes and rules.

I just submitted my entry, from a WIP that still doesn't have an official title:

The only thing worse than visiting a graveyard is paying your respects to the man you put there. No, I didn’t murder Cam—I’m not that far gone—but it was my fault his bones were rotting beneath that dull, gray slab. 

Good luck to everyone who enters!


  1. Oooh, good luck! :) I really hope you win. (I also wish I'd read about this in time to enter it, but never mind ;))

  2. Oy! I meant to post about the contest on Notebook in Hand. So sorry, Rachel. This has just a crazy week, complete with the family emergency I posted about over there. (And I came to the contest pretty late--can I use that for a defense too?)
