Avocado Papers’ Paragraphs

The blank page/screen is one of the most daunting obstacles an author faces. What to write? How to start? Well it looks likeThe Avocado Papers is removing that obstacle by selling opening paragraphs. Yup, that’s right, they’re selling “professionally crafted, ready-made ones… at the very reasonable rate of US $1.75 per word.” So, your opening paragraph can set you back anywhere from $152.25 to $838.25… and that’s non-exclusive.

I’m on the fence about this one. It would certainly come in handy, especially if you’re thinking of participating in National Novel Writing Month in November, but most writers I know don’t have that kind of scratch on hand.
