Chance to appear in Writer's Digest: Can you write an opening sentence for this photo prompt?

It’s that time again – time for Your Story.

We’ve once more opened the doors for submissions to the lone fiction spot in Writer’s Digest magazine. This time around, we’ve got a photo prompt (at right), and we’re asking you to write the opening sentence (25 words or fewer) to a story based on it. The deadline is Dec. 10, and after we narrow down the pool to 10 finalists, we’ll open the floor on our forum for readers to rank their favorites. You can enter by either sharing your sentence in the Comments section of Promptly (if the captcha isn’t working with your browser, send it to me at with “Promptly” in the subject line and I’ll make sure it gets up), or by e-mailing your sentence to (entries must be pasted directly into the body of the e-mail). The prompt is from our November/December issue featuring Ken Follett and David Morrell and our guide to writerly success on the Web, and the winner will appear in our May/June 2011 issue.

And as we say in the magazine, you can be funny, poignant, witty, etc.; it is, after all, your story.

Good luck!
