Where It All Begins
✪ Submission Closed

Every story needs a good opening line or paragraph to begin with. For example some of my favourites include:

“One minute the teacher was talking about the Civil War. And the next minute he was gone.” Goneby Michael Grant

“Newborn #485GA18M died on June 30, 2076, at 6:07 in the morning. She was three days old. The average lifespan of a human child, in the time since the break, was fifty-six hours.” Partialsby Dan Wells

“The end of the world started when a pegasus landed on the hood of my car.”The Last Olympianby Rick Riordan

“First the colors.Then the humans. That’s usually how I see things.Or at least, how I try.” -- The Book Thiefby Markus Zusak

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." -- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling

All of these are great books that I highly recommend.

But now its your turn.

Make up a fake title for a book then write the opening first line or paragraph.

Some Rules:

Nothing too excessive, the rating is PG.Characters from other books/movies can be used. But keep them in character please!Two entries per person.If you choose to write a paragraph rather than a sentence, please keep it within two.

Sounds easy? Hopefully it should be.

Good luck!

Additional note: I am going to be away for the next week, so when I get back I will read and comment on all the entries then!
