Postby TiffanyLuckey » Tue Jul 16, 2013 8:33 am

Prompt: Write the opening sentence (25 words or fewer) to a story based on the photo found here: ... contest-50.

Thanks to everyone who entered and/or in Your Story 50! Here are the results. The winners in ranking order are as follows:

1. As Mike stood watching, his only thought was: If I’m standing here, who the hell is flying the plane? (Russell Heidorn)

2. As I watched the plane leave with the last of humanity, I knew I was completely on my own. (Amanda Johnson)

3. I don’t know what’s worse about traveling back to the 20th century—flying in a plane or wearing these pants. (Beth Hatcher)

4. Missing his flight was actually the least of Matt’s worries—considering he was only flying to California to break Amelia’s heart. (Megan Cooper)

5. My life wasn’t a ’90s romantic comedy and Homeland Security was always watching, so I didn’t run wildly across the tarmac to stop the plane. (Mirriam Shah)

6. I never thought producing the world’s largest window sticker would be my pinnacle position in life. (Stephanie Groen)

7. Walter realized at that moment why his new home, with its million-dollar view, was obtained for such a preposterously low price. (John Pearson)

8. Tightly gripping her letter and standing beneath his newest addition, John realized his passion for model airplanes had gone too far. (Candace Running)

9. Paul stood in the silent terminal and stared out the window at the plane as it just hung there, neither landing nor taking off. (Dale Long)

10. “We have powers beyond human imagining,” whispered the slender, swaying plants as the craft hung suspended and the traveler, summoned to the window, stared. (Jeffrey Fishbein)
