A long and twisted tale.

The First Paragraph

The first paragraph of an epic story – how do you begin?
Do you simply introduce your character, do you drop the reader directly into the action, do you go for some clever technique to bait a hook?

1st paragraph

Each word is agonised over, should the city be bulgesome? Is the alliteration too much?
Can you read the word ‘Razzles’?

Anyway – for now – this is how it begins.
Maybe that will change.

  1. What a wonderful first paragraph.
    Could a book begin any better?
    I certainly couldn’t write a better opening.
