Omg I am the worst, I'm sorry. I'm still writing my April challenge story and here I am late with the May challenge. Take me out into a field and do away with me! Stick out tongue

This month's challenge is called First Impressions and the idea comes to us courtesy of a fellow AC forum member - Dreamalittlebi gger!

The premise of this challenge started with this statement:  "No good story starts with 'I was eating a salad...'"

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to take one of the following "terrible first lines" and write a short story about it!

The Rules:

- MUST be alternate universe (the Boys are not Backstreet Boys, give whomever you use a different occupation/lifestyle)
- MUST be first-person narrative
- Max 3000 words
- No banners
- MUST start with one of the following phrases:
  
  • “We met in a bar.”
  • “I woke up, groggy and sweat-stained, to find an enormous hole in the center of my black T-shirt, like I came out on the losing end of a battle against Mothman.”
  • "It was a dark and stormy night..."
  • "I haven't had sex in six months with someone other than myself."
  • "This is a mystery about a murder I committed."

Happy writing!!

Those are great. I scanned them to see if I wrote any of those lines already Wink  heehee

I know I keep saying it but maybe I'll actually follow through and write a story this time.
