 This week will be something fun:

Write cliche. As cliche as possible, just sit down and write out some great stereotypical, over-the-top dramatics. 

This might sound strange, but do it. Trust me, you'll have fun!

Have fun, ya'll.

Alrighty! It's been a while hasn't it? Here's some story starters to work with this week. Choose one or some or all, and write at least part of a story:

"I was unaware that my cow was depressed."  -Home of the Brave by K.A. Applegate

"She put out one thin hand towards him, and the firelight glinted on a huge ring that rose round as a marble above her finger." -The Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper

"There are 94 streetlamps between the bus stop and the school."  -The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

"Perched clumsily on top of a television set was a large turkey."  -Olivia Kidney by Ellen Potter

Have fun!

NOTE: These are from real books. If you want whatever you write from these to be heard/published, I suggest changing them slighlty.
