Um, you could start a story about how everyone was abducted by aliens, and you saved them all by hijacking a space shuttle?

Write it about some kid who spends its time on social network websites and how many cool friends it made. Then how it started getting out of hand because people were bullying him constantly. Then a happy ending with an account being deleted and a new one being opened.

Well since it's nearly Christmas time maybe you could write about a story of a girl who doesn't believe in the true meaning of Christmas and she soon realizes, ya know, blah, blah, blah, and things happen to her like her best friend is kidnapped or her dad dies and she meets Jesus in disguise and he helps her through Christmas but she doesn't know it's him until the end and the last line can be something like, "Bye, Jesus." and throughout the story you give clues about how he's different from a regular man. Sooo yeah. Good luck.

Greasers were before the 60's, like the 50's.

How about an excerpt from the diary of a murderer? The format of a diary is easy to create and stick with, and you can write it in first person, so no trying to speak for different people. End it with a twist, like his or her mom finds the diary and calls the police.

How about you write about something that interest you? Get all your interest together, and try to write a topic sentence. Maybe pick a time in history you like, and place yourself in that time period on an adventure. Once you got a topic sentence, you can just write. If that doesn't work, try these websites with fun random story generators: http://www.seventhsanctum.com , and http://www.the-elite.net/story-generator/ . Those are just two of the many websites out there, you can search google for more. Hope this helps!

I have always found the best stories start in weird places and the details get filled in along the way. Some examples:
a) I hear a roar. Not an animal but more like an ocean. I open my eyes but all I see is orange all around. An orange tent? Where am I? I wake up groggily, as if I had been sleeping forever. I crawl to the zipper and open it. I see water, sand, trees...wait. Where is the plane?
b) - Next customer please - I am returning this because it doesn't work -You look at the person, then at the reciprocating saw. Years of working the returns desk has taught you what to look for. The shifty eyes, the sweaty palms, the I-want-to-be-your friend conversations. You switch focus to the merchandise. It's a cheap saw. You have seen it returned several times before. It is not worth inspecting it. You smile and process the transaction. (Here you can introduce the cashiers family, military/police husband plus kids, something happens, end it with "Next customer please", just like in the beginning.)
