Creative Jump-Start

In addition to my blog earlier this month (Morning Poems), I've another jump-start for the imagination to recommend.

WritersDigest.com (November/December 2012) features The First Line in their "Standout Markets" by Tiffany Luckey. In this issue, Ms. Luckey notes:

"Every story in an issue begins with the same sentence. Although these first lines are identical, the individual stories are unique: Each possesses distinctive and
compelling plotlines, characters and, of course, endings."

It's enticing to me and I will certainly go to thefirstline.com to gather more information for first lines and submission deadlines. I hope you will, too.
