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?
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.

Should it be colourful? Filled with action? Should there be a small green person standing in a doorway?
