Online Writing Contest

Children Come First, a website dedicated to cultivating a love of learning, holds a monthly First Lines contest for writers of all ages. Each month they provide the first few words of a story, and you finish it up in 200 words or less. A selection of winning entries is posted each month on their site.

It’s a fun and rewarding writing exercise for all levels of writers. I’ve had several stories posted here in recent months, though I didn’t find the time to enter in July. This month’s first line is, "Waving frantically at the street car...". If I can just shake the image of an old Rice-a-Roni commercial out of my head, I might take a stab at it.
