What is the very worst first line of a novel you can come up with on the spur of the moment?

"It was a dark and windy night and the aliens were bored."

Once upon a time, there was a dog, and his name was Fido.

"It was a dark and stormy night; it's cliche to use this line when addressing your awesome EF admin"...

Seriously, I hear my name tossed about in some really horrible lines...but "it was a dark and stormy night" is ranked as the worst opening line of all time.

You have a way with words don't you... I'm so jealous!

It's all about perspective and how one views life(day to day and deep stuff). So, I guess it is about the reader. On the other hand it should also be what the author wants to betray..

I dont know. I tend to way over think things and play 'devils advocate' and get lost in what I am doing. I want to reader to see and understand me; that piece of my heart I am trying to get across....

Practice my dear that's all it takes. Writing each and every day will help you to actually form what you want to convey. No one wants to see you flay open your guts to peer inside...sometimes just a peek is more titillating. You want people to sip at your well and thirst for more....oh gawd stop me I am doing it again....

~Nod that's why my night was WINDY! Adding Stormy to anything makes it awesome. Holy cow is my nose brown or what?

We have a WINNER! Give this woman 1,000 points Stormy. That was a truly crappy first line. I would love to see if you could take that one crappy line and make a neat little story out of it.

Looking at the time I can see we've sort of gone over the hour mark. This was a great discussion. Next month we'll take a look at getting started...some strategies for writing that all important first paragraph.

Thank you for attending the February 2013 Meeting of the Eden Lit Club
I look forward to seeing you next month! Same time Same place.

It would be beneficial it keep older writing to see how I progress... I could surprise myself in the future! I went back and looked at my art from high school... I WAS AWESOME, but I didn't see it then.

I am my own worst critic.
I need to lighten up on my self. Write my shitty(in my opinion) work of art. and keep going, if I dont like it move on.
The key is not letting go and just keep writing...

I NEED to invest in a journal to keep my thoughts, writing and experiences... It helped me allot in high school.
Then my soul was crushed when my step mother/monster (who was in a since EVIL) went through my room while I was away and read/exposed all of my writings.
I then burned all of my private writings and never pick it back up. That saddened me.

Enough time(years) have passed. I think I'd like to pick it up again. No nosy parental figures around to put that fear in me, of them reading 'it'.
