The Storyteller's Scroll: "First Sentence Contest" at The Storyteller's Scro...: FIRST SENTENCES IN A FLASH! First sentences must be dynamic from the very first glance. “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clock were striking thirteen." -1984 Ceorge Orwell
See what I mean...
As writer's we often struggle with our opening lines. Thie story might be fantastic, but if we don't get the reader hooked in the beginning they'll never get to our wonderful story.
You want a reader to get that unmistakable "WOW!" feeling at the start. Something ticks in their brain that tells them they absolutely MUST read your story, be it picture book or novel!
So to help polish all those first lines I have a contest to share with you.
