Contest Update

Jim McCarthy over a DGLM (Dystel & Goderich Literary Management) posted his top nine choices for his first line contest.

Sadly, mine didn't make the cut.

However, there were more than 250 participants so it's hard to be down on myself for not pulling it out. Now, if there had only been 10 and I didn't make the top 9 -- that would have been a different story.

Anyway, if you entered, this is your reminder to go check it out. If your sentence is one of the contestants be sure to let me know so I can vote for you & pimp you out to my followers.

If none of us made the finalist list, then let's at least help a fellow writer out & vote for our favorite to get that writer a chance to have their manuscript reviewed sans query.

Yeah, me no get in cut eider :(

I had my eye on that one about white guilt, though. I knew it would make it. Pretty cool notion, hey?

I was partial to the one about the five husbands myself.

I also liked the "sluttiwhen drunkus" too, but my OCD wouldn't let me vote for it since it was technically two lines.

Sorry you didn't make it, but that is a lot of competition, odds-wise.

Great blog.
