First impressions count.
And, like it or not, people will consider whether or not they will like your work just by reading the first few lines.
With that in mind I would like to ask you Who wrote your favourite opening to a book / best first line?
I like Stephen King’s ‘The Body’ (Stand By Me) and Neil Gaiman ‘The Graveyard.’
Something about those two stories that means you have to carry on reading.
Interested in your comments.
