Background: This year, the Lyttle Lotton contest had two categories.

The first contest is to write the opening sentence to a bad novel.

The Winner:

“It all started when my topaz eyes looked up into his soft emerald ones.”

The second contest is to write a small paragraph, using relatively short passages they have found elsewhere, and we are to re-imagine them as the openings to very bad novels.

The Winner:

“When your hand becomes steel, there is nothing you can’t punch.”

So Now, I Turn To You.... Write Your Own!

Stars will be used to determine the best “Worst” sentence or passage.
