As an inverse response to my June 16 post, “Beginnings”, Chris Harder just sent me the 2009 winners in the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest to write the worst opening sentence.

Sometimes writing badly can be just as hard as writing well. (Well, let’s hope so, anyway!)


Author: Judith

Judith Lindbergh's latest novel, Pasture of Heaven, is about a nomad woman warrior on the Central Asian steppes in the 5th century BCE. (And there really were!) Her first novel, The Thrall's Tale, is a literary historical novel about three women in the first Viking Age settlement in 10th century Greenland. The Thrall's Tale was a Booksense Pick and a Borders Original Voices selection. Judith is also the founder and director of The Writers Circle, a creative writing program offering workshops for children and adults.
