Beginnings of Books Unwritten
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: write the opening to a novel. It can be as short as a sentence or as long as the full 1024.
Just entice us so much with the opening that we’ll wish like crazy we could read the whole novel!
Inspiration and examples, if needed, can be found in this Nanowrimo 2010 thread: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node/3699714 or in Sarah Monette’s LJ: http://truepenny.livejournal.com/804710.html
Good luck! Enjoy!
