Journal Pulp is offering a $100.00 cash prize for the following:
Best first sentence for a novel about a monomaniacal archeologist who discovers for certain the actual resting place of the Ark of the Covenant, and who resolves that, despite its being so heavily guarded, she will open the golden lid of the Ark — or die trying.
Rules and guidelines:
No outrageous run-ons. You can submit anonymously or under your real name, it doesn’t matter.
No minimum length requirement.
Submit as many separate entries as you’d like.
Leave your sentence(s) here.
The winner will be selected by the Journal Pulp.
The contest will be open for two weeks from today: June 18, 2014, through July, 2014, at midnight.
