SOOOOO, I'm trying to write a story but I have no idea how to start it? :? I could go with the main character waking up or something, but that seems kinda stupid since I'm trying to make the story dramatic

Ink is blood. Paper is bandages. The wounded press books to their heart to know they're not alone.

Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.
