Nathan Bransford's 1st Paragraph Contest...

Go enter:

I'm still debating what to enter...but I've had a lot of insight reading the entries (first paragraphs) and what makes them good and what makes them lame.  

It's giving me a headache, because while I want to enter my stupid WIP that I've been working on forever and ever and ever and is probably my worst first paragraph--which is really sad to realize because it means I really need to change that first paragraph/first chapter again... what the crap?

So I'm thinking about entering this other paragraph from something that doesn't even have 5k of it written yet...  um yeah I'll let you know how that goes.

Anyway go enter, because really what do you have to lose?

Good luck.


  1. So I entered because you're right, what did I have to lose? Fun stuff, thanks for posting the link. Did you end up entering anything?

  2. I know what you mean about getting lots of insight from all the entries. After a while you can see the pattern, and hopefully my entry is pretty good.
