It’s your first sentence. The opening line to your masterpiece. The words that will grab your reader and pull him into your world. They. Have. To. Be. Perfect. No pressure.
We’re not here to give you a lesson in writing the opening hook. But it is May 1st and we thought that was the perfect opportunity to celebrate some firsts.
So, we’re posting the first lines of some of our books. And we invite you, our amazing WITS readers, to post yours. One line. That’s it. But do include the title please. And please limit to three.
