Story-Starter Sunday

WordsAs you all know, I love story-starter Sunday. I’m sitting at Barnes & Noble, and I just finished listening to my Steelers lose to the Vikings in London. It’s been a rough start for them this year. This is the first time since 1986 that they’ve started their season 0-4. They get better every game, and that’s all I can ask for. So I think my story-starter will be based on today’s events. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Story-Starter Sunday, it’s just a one-liner for you to begin a story. Of course, you can use it any way that you want, but it’s meant to be the first line of your story. Have fun!

Hope you enjoy this one! Happy writing!

Story-Starter Sunday

Sadly, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Hopefully I’m back in full swing. I’ve been catching up with my other blogs and twitter. Now it’s time to catch up with this one. I try to think of interesting story-starters for those who desire a little inspiration. The idea is to use the line as the first sentence in your story or poem, but it’s really up to you to do whatever you really want with it. Here is your story-starter for this Sunday:

She looked out the window, saw the rain, and thought, “Thank god for cuddle weather.” 

Hope you have fun. Happy Writing!
