He was bad news from the start.

You know the type. The kind of of guy you just get a bad feeling from.

For this year's Jive writing contest, we're asking for a 400-words-or-less piece of fiction around the wrong sort of man. He could be a boyfriend, a politician, a supermarket checker, a drifter. Something's off, but something draws you in. Something happens, and it isn't always his fault. We want to read what your sharp fiction-writing minds have to say about this guy. Just make sure that your story at some point contains the phrase, "He was bad news from the start."

Our favorite bad-news entries will be published in our Fall Lit Issue, and we'll have a party and reading with the winners that very night, Oct. 17, at Copperfield's Books in Montgomery Village at 6pm!

Send your entries to javajive@bohemian.com.

Deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 5pm.
