In December 2014 I wrote a blog entitled Story Starters with 60 original story starters in. You can read them here.
I thought I would add to that with another 25. So here you go! Some have been provided by Literacy Shed users. They are credited in brackets.

5. Because of you I only a pair of cerulean eyes to bury in an otherwise empty casket. (Schuyler Loughlin)

12. There was a note in my fortune cookie that said, "Leave now don't say anything to anyone and never come back!" (Bradie Rouse)
