Daniel Durbin sat alone in his house staring at a blank computer document.  The cursor blinked at him impatiently, waiting for him to bring the page to life with his words.  He had never been successful as a writer,  and he wondered why he still bothered with the occupation.  He typed three letters that appeared on the screen in hopes that more would follow:

Great. Daniel thought. Four years of studying journalism at Duke and the best I could come up with is "the".  Watch out Shakespeare. Daniel ran a hand through his short blonde hair and sighed. he shoved the office chair out from underneath him and made his way out the door to stand outside. Maybe if I go outside and get some cold air while I freeze my nuts off I can get my creative juices flowing. Daniel put his coat on and stepped out onto his porch. When he was looking for a home to buy, he wanted someplace quiet where he couldn't be disturbed while writing so he found a quaint house in the country of Minnesota to help him. But clearly it was going to take more than the quiet of the Minnesota country to give him inspiration.  The house wasn't much, a 2 bedroom little abode, but it was good for just him.  What is the point of me having two bedrooms? He thought as he stood in the cold. Maybe I should get a dog or something. 

He looked out to the beautiful country, and saw that something appeared to be smoking in the middle of his yard behind a big snow drift. Fire? In the snow? Daniel walked over to the drift to inspect what was smoldering in his yard. As he peeked over the snow drift, he saw nothing but a huge black spot. Daniel could still hear it sizzling. Whatever it was, it was here just a short while ago. He reached a hand over the spot and could feel the heat from it. And it was very hot. Extremely hot.
