Day 25: Hook

Ok, go ahead, make fun of me for still having trouble starting my story.

The plotlines and characters are falling into place, but it's just hard to start, you know? I'm so paranoid of that first sentence. It really means a lot. Maybe I'm over-thinking it.

I found this awesome article from Writer's Digest, called "10 ways to start your story", by Jacob M. Appel: http://www.writersdigest.com/writing-articles/by-writing-goal/write-first-chapter-get-started/10-ways-to-start-your-story-better

It's a great guide that gives great varied tips on how to start your story strongly. After reading it, I experimented by writing different "beginnings" to my story. At least a few sentences, to see if I liked the way things were starting off. Hopefully it'll hit me soon. It hits everyone eventually, right?

In Soviet Russia, book writes me!!

And also in Soviet Russia cats are superior reading creatures!
