I need your opinion.
I’m playing again. I should be working. In fact, staff meeting is in ten minutes.
But I’m playing.
Writer’s Digest has a contest for writing prompts. You’re supposed to write an opening line, in twenty five words or less, for a story that goes along with the picture that is the writing prompt. I have entered four or five times over the past couple of years, but I’ve never sniffed victory. This time, I thought I’d get you guys to help me pick. I’ve written several different possible lines. Vote for which one you like best.
Here is the picture.
If you want to play too, click on THIS LINK. It’s fun and easy.
Now, back to my problems. Below are my opening lines, and then a poll for you to vote. Remember, you have to click the word “vote” to register your selection. Thanks!
A. With each step into the dark woods, Jenna sealed her fate.
