The Best of Bad Writing

The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, named for the creator of the "dark and stormy night" stuff made famous by Snoopy, honors the best worst first sentence of a novel.

This year, a University of Wisconsin professor earned the award with a sentence about dead birds and dead-end thinking. Or something like that.

If you aspire to similar heights, learn more about the contest here:
