Railroad track switchI was digging through my document archives and found some opening lines that I never developed into stories. Maybe one of them will inspire you. Happy writing!

  • The train from Starkville was 2 hours late, and when it arrived, Mavis was nowhere to be seen.
  • Sunlight glinted off the puddle of water, where two days before there had been only dry dirt.
  • There are a dozen broken tiles on the floor of my grandfather’s house.
  • I stared in disgust at the silent phone, willing it to ring.
