"And then the murders began."

Inspired by this article titled
Quote:
Improve any novel by changing its second line to “And then the murders began”

http://www.avclub.com/article/improv...and-the-251576
And it works especially good with kid's books! Here's a couple I threw together.


From (2003) TMNT book "Tricks and Treats":
Quote:
April opened her apartment door, letting in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And then the murders began.


From a version of Henny Penny/Chicken Little:
Quote:
One day Henny Penny was out in the barnyard pecking for corn when all of a sudden, something hit her on the head. Then the murders began.
