My cousin who lives in the northwest US and whose identity I will protect (you’ll soon see why…) recently began a letter to Imagethe family this way:

The chill air pressed against the window like an old, smelly chamois down at the car wash, and there was no way to escape the oppressive, smothering, suffocating, stultifying, clammy, cold fog, that just stayed there like a fiscal cliff, while out there somewhere the sun was shining, and people were warm and walking about in hideous bermuda shorts–the whole thing was just too, too horrible, like a bad opening paragraph in story that would never be sold. 
 
Can you write a better worse paragraph?

Chokepoint: Mini-Mission 1.5

Blurb:

Ever since I returned from Moscow, life is a full court press. Mission League field agents are everywhere. All the time. Watching. Waiting for me to fulfill a sixty-year-old prophecy. When some baddies try to guy-nap me, the field agents threaten to move me and Grandma Alice to some random hick town, to give us new fake identities until the prophecy is fulfilled.
Not going to happen.
I’ve got one chance to stay in Pilot Point. I have to prove to the agents that I can stay safe. Have to make this work. For basketball. For Kip. For Beth.

So, bring it, baddies. It’s game on.

100% OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS ENOVELLA GO TOWARD THE ADOPTION OF LITTLE SYDNEY FROM EASTERN EUROPE. PLEASE, HELP BRING SYDNEY HOME.
