The Worst Sentence Awards

Every year the folks at the Bul­w­er-Lyt­ton Fic­tion Con­test cel­e­brate their love for bad prose by run­ning “a whim­si­cal lit­er­ary com­pe­ti­tion that chal­lenges entrants to com­pose the open­ing sen­tence to the worst of all pos­si­ble nov­els.” They’ve just announced this year’s cham­pi­on sen­tences and they’re well worth a read. The con­test accepts entries year-round, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to write the worst sen­tence of 2008, feel free to take your shot.
