Fall Writing Flash Mob

4 Oct

It rained last night, the first of the season. For some reason, maybe the inherent introversion of a gray sky, it seems to call for a literary response. So over on Twitter I’ve suggested that we offer a worst first sentence for a non-existent novel. Multiple entries are fine. My first, in case it helps you to head over that way: “No one could say precisely why Yancey Wilmerding left her husband, Don and ran off with a trained seal, yet it was so.”

American literature is waiting.
