Doh!

I'm trying to decide if this idea is merely weird or actively dumb. GalleyCat reports that a company called Avocado Papers is selling opening paragraphs for writers to use when they can't come up with their own!

OK, so maybe the answer is that it's weird that someone thinks this isn't a dumb idea!

I suppose it isn't dumb for them to try and sell them (Have you seen the prices they're charging? Sheesh!) on the assumption that anything is worth a poke once...

What would be dumb, is if anyone actually bought them! :D

Gah. And the writing isn't astoundingly good, either.

An opening paragraph is to writing what hands are to art. I still can't draw a decent hand, but I'm hardly going to go cut someone else's line art and stick them on my characters.

Yeah. It's like renting someone else's body parts. Ugh!
