Tip: “Her eyes dropped to the floor.” – ewwww. Check your story for loose body parts. Unless it’s a horror story or gruesome murder scene, you shouldn’t leave them lying around. Her gaze can drop to the floor, but not her eyes. And don’t “toss yourself” anywhere. Unless you’re a clone.

Thought for the day: “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” – Douglas Adams

Jumpstart: Create a comic book superhero. Male or female? Human? What powers does s/he have? How does s/he use them?
