Lyttle Lytton Contest
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:33:17 PM »
Do you know the Lyttle Lytton Contest?

I didn't so if you knew it, shame on you for not telling me! ;)

If not, you're in for a treat.

You have 200 characters to write the beginning of an imaginary novel. Your goal is to make it hilariously bad.?

The contest runs since 2001 and here are some of the winners:

Quote from: Shaked Koplewitz
Dudley was a magician (not a wizard like in those Harry Potter books, and also he didn’t have a wand like in them), who was poor.

Quote from: Daria
Haileighe Summers sat, tears crossing her azure eyes, as Xackary Florets, the chestnut?haired love of her life, lay expiring.

Quote from: Mary Potts
Olivia wore a sexy red dress that was just sexy enough that people who saw her thought she was sexy but knew she wasn’t a slut.

Quote from: Harper Cole
The usually handsome left side of my darling husband’s face spasmed a full 90 degrees into horror when I told him my little secret.

Quote from: David Hewitson
“Do you still love me, John?” I asked. “I don’t love you, Marie,” came the reply from the letter I held in my shaking hands.

Quote from: Hannah Sim
David fell into Greg’s manful arms and cried against his waiting muscles.

Quote from: Dan Shiovitz
His eyes were brown, although you wouldn't know it just by looking.

Quote from: Top Changwatchai
Turning, I mentally digested all of what you, the reader, are about to find out heartbreakingly.
