A challenge -- and advance warning!
First, for our Winter challenge: Choose one of these 5 opening sentences 
from modern classic novels and write a story that begins with it (that is, use 
it as the first sentence in your story). (We did this in 10th grade!)

Your sentence choices:
In olden times, when wishing still helped, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful, but the youngest was so beautiful that the sun itself, which had seen so many things, was always filled with amazement each time it cast its rays upon her face.

Sybil Davidson has a genius I.Q. and has been laid by at least six different guys.

I went back to the Devon School not long ago, and found it looking oddly newer than when I was a student there fifteen years before.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they executed the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York.

Your deadline: November 15, 1999

Next: Advance Warning
Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa-based stories will all be accepted 
(providing they're 5,000 words or less) for our special bonus end-of-year issue. 

We also want holiday recipes -- give them a Law & Order twist! (See our previous holiday issues -- attached to the winter issue always -- for ideas. Our favorite of all time: Drew Washington's Party Shak Dip. Lol!

Recipes and Holiday Challenges due date: December 15, 1999
