2011 Puddle Award for Best Opening Line: Qualifying Heats

If you haven't yet voted in the qualifying heats for this year's Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Opening Line, there's still time. There are eight heats in all. The winners (or joint winners) from heats one to seven go straight through. The second place finishers battle it out in heat eight to see which title joins the others in the final round.

What's at stake?
Bragging rights for the winner? An interview and/or guest post here on An Englishman in New Jersey, as well as
signed copy of my book, Fur-Face, and a couple of I are a writer! pens, as shown in the pic below.

You'll need an LJ account to vote, but they're free

Good luck to all who take part! Vene, vidi, puddli!
