Saturday Story Starter

Howdy, fellow writers!

It’s high time for a new story starter, wouldn’t you say? How about we kick off Memorial Day weekend with a new one?

For those of you who haven’t participated before, Saturday Story Starter is purely for fun, just a way to exercise those writing muscles (think of it as Heather’s Literary Gym). There are no prizes, only the simple joy of putting words on paper (well, OK, on the computer screen). Also, I won’t be offering critiques, just brief words of encouragement, but I will read all your entries, that I can promise! (And if you’d like to read some of the earlier stories that have been shared, click here and click here and click here and here and click here and here and click here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here to browse to your heart’s content…)

Let’s get started, shall we?


Now this is intriguing, isn’t it? Someone took a lot of time and put a lot of effort into gathering the elements for this sign and then putting it together. Who do you think did it? Who do you think were they hoping would read it? Was it ever discovered and read? What happened then?

You’re the writer, so these decisions are yours to make. Set the scene and tell us a story…

Ready, set, WRITE!
