Please do. Reading some of those “It was a dark and stormy night” intros, I had to hold my tummy I was laughing so hard.
Turns out it is the same contest.......only it has been expanded and no longer HAS to start with “It was a dark and stormy night...” the way it used to.
This link on this thread.......same contest. Laughed so hard I hurt......:)
This one just for you.....:)
Winner: Purple Prose
