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.

The First Page

What makes an effective first page?
Should it be colourful? Filled with action? Should there be a small green person standing in a doorway?

Razzles The Knohm

Razzles

Razzles the knohm.

Razzles is a successful resident of the huge UnKnown World city Tullgotha.
He has a love for the easy life and enjoys a rather emotional temperament.
Unbeknownst to him he is about to become embroiled in a quest that will take him far from his comfortable home and test his negligible abilities to the full.

A somewhat frangible folk, knohms are often skittish, finicky and given to bouts of excessive gambolling.
