Last week, I mentioned that I have three main works-in-progress. Here are the rough openings to each:
WIP #1: Aidan cut his hand and watched his blood pool in the inkwell.
WIP #2: Humanity’s inhumanity is what drove Aristotle to the mental ward.
WIP #3 (the roughest of all): Some days, it would be nice staying invisible.
For writers, the first sentence is sometimes all the readers will give us. We’d best make ’em killer.
These sentences are relatively short. I wonder if that’s a good thing…. Well, I suppose it’s time to study openings that work…again.
Keep your pen on the page,
