CC's Daily Story Starters - sometimes all you need is a little push in any direction...
Blocked? Bored? Blue? Need a push to start off today's writing?
Here are today's Story Starters. Use them as you see fit -- alter them to suit your needs, use them as inspiration or as an exercise -- or best of all, shake your head in disgust and write a much better opening line!
Today's theme: Violence and death

"Are you my mother?" she asked, holding the knife behind her back. -- PAD this!
He was definitely dead. --PAD this!
My grandfather had never in his life touched a gun. But obviously he had died by one. --PAD this!
Things to consider:
Who died? When, where, how, why?
Can you relate any of these deaths to your story or a character's past?
Does the line bring a scene to mind? Can you paint it with your own words?
