writing gorey vast reluctance

I've avoided it for as long as I can. I have the revision notes, both mine and John's, for "The Red in the Sky is Our Blood," and today is devoted to making it not suck. Well, what's left of today, anyway. I successfully frittered the morning away on exercise and making a pot of supa improvisata (no, that's not supposed to be real Italian).

Now I have to fix this story.

And the first thing I have to do is find a first line that would not get it rejected by every self-respecting magazine editor in North America.

Possibly what you really need to do here is get all the first line candidates which you feel do not meet this criterion out of your system by, y'know...

...posting them where I can see them.

I think that might really help!
Where can I find all the magazine editors who *don't* respect themselves? That might just be an easier starting point for me . . .
No matter how many times I see that title, I read it as "The Red in the Sky is in Our Blood."

Why am I telling you this? Because I'm busy procrastinating, of course! 8-D
What's wrong with "It was a dark and stormy night."?
