1st Paragraph Contest
Nathan Bransford is holding his sort-of-annual 1st paragraph contest. It looks like a fun contest so I'm going to give it a shot. It's also interesting to see how so many others start their own stories.
Paul Anthony Shortt believes in magic and monsters. In ghosts and fairies. The creatures that lurk under the bed and inside the closet. The things that live in the dark, and the heroes who stand against them. Above all, he believes that stories have the power to change the world, and the most important stories are the ones which show that monsters can be beaten.
