Tip of the Week

Write a story beginning with this line:

"I didnīt hear you come in last night."

Think about all the directions the line can send your story in. It could be a line of dialogue, or not. It could suggest something unfortunate looming betweent two characters. It could even jump-start something humorous. Experiment!
