Staring at a blank piece of paper can be intimidating. To get your creative juices flowing, The Accidental Novelist (Writes Again) is hosting a 50 first lines contest. The basics: write fifty possible first lines, then post your five favorites in the comments section by midnight tonight (Monday). Not much time, but it’s only fifty lines. You can do it!
If you want some examples, check out the 50 list by 4am Writer. Stiff competition! I might post mine here as well if I can get myself organized. Let me know if you end up taking part!
