As a critique group moderator, I sometimes send my groups an exercise to spark their creativity. In the exercise, I select three words at random and make a first line or paragraph of a story using those three words.
Here is an example of one for a young adult story/submission starter.
The three words that I selected were: Startled, Shattering, and Stomach.
Startled, Meghan twirled toward the shattering glass. Gasping, her hands grasped her stomach. The thing she has always feared would happen stood before her.
