The other day my usually ready-to-write son had a hard time thinking about what to write about for a short story. I was stumped for a minute, wondering how I could help him. I thought I had a book which contained "story starters", but no luck. So, I searched the internet for a good list. I'll tell you, it took me a while to find an appropriate list. Lots of the "story starters" looked like they were more for college students or even sleezy fiction. I wanted to share 50 great "story starters" I found. My son really liked the choices, and had no problem developing a short story from the one he chose. He is so excited about the story that he is working on expanding it to a longer, more detailed one.
