2006 Bulwer-Lytton Contest Results

2006 Bulwer-Lytton Contest

If you’re not already familiar with it, treat yourself to the web site of the Bulwer-Lytton Contest, an annual literary parody that asks contestants to submit just the opening line to an imaginary novel.

The results for the 2006 contest have been announced, and I am pleased to say that my entry in the Romance Category garnered a Dishonorable Mention:

“Like a baleen whale inhaling krill--a collection of small marine crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea--or an anteater sucking up Formicidae-- characteristically having wings only in the males and fertile females and living in colonies that have a complex social organization--her lips sought out mine in a passionate kiss.”
