Fun and games with Jenners

Jenners at Life with Little One and More is hosting a silly game on her website today.  It looks like you have until the end of the  month to enter.

The idea is to write the worst opening to a novel ever.  Here are my entries...

  • It was raining and everything was wet.  Sarah didn't want to go outside for she had a terrible fear of melting. ~ from Adventures of a bar of soap.
  • Aliens were picketing on my front yard and I knew from the very beginning that today wasn't going to be a good day. ~ from the Top 10 Reasons I Lost My Job
  • Earthworms live in dirt.  They mate with themselves.  After what just happened with my last boyfriend, I think I may want to be an earthworm. ~ from My boyfriends name is Jack.  It's short for something.
If you want to play along, Mr. Linky is up on Jenners blog.

Hilarious, you are so imaginative. I bet when you were a little girl you just sat and daydreamed ridiculous scenario daydreams all day at school (although you must have woken up for the English lessons as you write so well.......)

LOVE LOVE LOVE your lines!!! hehehe Especially the bar of soap one. I wrote a couple too, check mine out and tell me what you think. Don't you think it totally makes it when you put a title as well? I has soooo much fun doing this.
todays word: "diester"
This is the first two words of the first line of a very bad novel...
"Die Ester!" he muttered under his breath as he thoroughly mixed the ant poison into her favorite breakfast of hot muesli with fresh raspberries. An excerpt from Death By Breakfast.
