One of the websites that I visit quite often is Writer’s Digest. And they have the best articles to browse through if you ever need an inspiration or to drop money on some book you think will lead you to success…
Anyway, about every other day they post up writing prompts to give you a leg up on starting up a story. I have a couple of favorites that I will post up from time to time.
Try this on for size and leave a comment on how you think you first couple of sentences would go:
A close friend asks you to help him kill his wife and, to his surprise, you agree without hesitation—not because you particularly dislike his wife, but because she’s the only person who knows this one deep, dark secret that could ruin your life forever. Write about how you confront her and how the murder plays out.
