Reading and Deliberating


The sort of night that should be dark and stormy,
Is the very place where we lay our story.

Winners are many though there can be but one,
Who has the power of powerful pun.

The rest I'm afraid I cannot rhyme,
See who won in a matter of time.

Dear Renfeildians,

This is the contest of best opening lines from imaginary novels. Have fun and remember the en is mightier than the sword. You have two weeks to enter starting as of the 7th of July.

Yours truely,


My adoring respect.


It was a dark and stormy night... It was a dark and stormy night...
Once upon a time... Once upon a time...
Mr and Mrs Dursley, of nunber four, Privet Drive... Mr and Mrs Dursley, of nunber four, Privet Drive...
Call me Ishmael... Call me Ishmael...
