Ah the first paragraph of an epic story – how do you begin?
Do you introduce your character, do you drop the reader right into the action, do you go for some clever technique to hook the reader?
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.
