    Novel? That doesn’t even reach the short story status.

    Again ? I think you have to come up with something new, Snoopy…Try, " It was a bright sunny day"….and give your story a surprise ending too….

    This strip has killed that opening line forever. If you want to start with a late thunderstorm, you have to do it differently.

    Actually, that opening line was dead long before this. It’s supposed to be the archetype of the WORST opening lines ever.

    It’s actually a salute to Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who also coined the phrases “The pen is mightier than the sword,” “The pursuit of the almighty dollar,” and the term “the great unwashed.” (Thank you, Wikipedia). Of course, Old Snoop made him even more popular with the “It was a dark and stormy night” running gag. It inspired the annual Bulwer-Lytton writing contest for the worst opening line to a novel.

    Hey Snoopy, why don’t you add another line something like “and a shot rang out”, might help.

    As long as you don’t start out with “Call me Ishmael…”

    What you need, Snoopy, is an Acme 2000 word processer!

    As I recall, A Wrinkle in Time starts off with that line too.
    .
    “When around the corner a meat-wagon flew.”
    Q: What has four wheels and flies?
