Hi! So this thread is made for blocked writers who perhaps need to be prompted into action, or need a prompt to be prompted into action. In other words, this is a thread with some ideas on how to begin a story with a story starter. You can continue the story your way, or you can post another idea for a story starter. Alright, here are my starters! It was a normal day, except for the fact that it was a Sunday. And when I stepped outside to stretch my legs after blowing through a two-hour session on my computer, I noticed a bright envelope sticking out of my mailbox. Someone had been lighting my firecrackers, because I sure hadn't been. Trotting around the fence with Lila, my tail wagging and my paws propelling me so I go faster than the wind--I'm just happy so long as I don't have to hear Mr. _____ call me 'Dog' again. Bowling was always fun for me, but tonight it just made me feel worse. The Frisbee flew over the fence, and disappeared into the green-brown pond. Now, this was my dad's ancient collector's edition $80 Frisbee, and this was the only one in the United States that we knew of. A match, as if in slow motion, fell against the cupboard, which went up in flames quickly. And mom wasn't home. A halo began, right on the crown of ____'s head. He/she had no idea, and looked around, trying to figure out why the other children were gawking and pointing. And after a couple seconds, two feathery, pillowy wings puffed up behind him. But he/she could feel them, and he/she understood: he/she was an angel. Enjoy!
