It's ridiculously difficult to start a novel that begins with a stormy night and not come across completely cliche all "It was a dark and stormy night."

So, um... "It had been a long day, made longer by a heavy and persistent drizzle that trailed through [] Valley."

Err, hum... buh?


  1. How about the first clear day after a week of heavy storms? A little twist on the cliche that may still achieve the effect you are looking for.

  2. Don't know why.. there's no sun up in the sky... stormy weather

  3. Someone's age might be showing. I have no idea what you're talking about, Noxy.

    Yngwe - good call. I like it!

    It's not the best recording I have ever heard, but It gives you the idea.
