One of the most unique and memory-sticking openers Apprentice Writer has ever come across:

"I write this sitting in the kitchen sink.
That is, my feet are in it; the rest of me is on the draining board...I can't say that I am really comfortable (but) I have found that sitting in a place where you have never sat before can be inspiring - I wrote my very best poem while sitting on the hen-house."

from "I Capture the Castle" by Dodie Smith
