The JUST WRITE SOMETHING Challenge | Day 21
I'm a firm believer that the opening line of the book is the most important. This is the sentence that 100% of the people who open the book will read because not everyone will make it to the end. Therefore, you've got make sure that your first line packs a punch!
I've listed the first sentence from some of my favorite children books below:
"A wild, ringing neigh shrilled up from the hold of the Spanish galleon." - Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry.
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 Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
"Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." - Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
"Gilly,' said Miss Ellis with a shake of her long blonde hair toward the passenger in the back seat." - The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson
"There is no lake at Camp Green Lake." - Holes by Louis Sachar
Sophia liked to think that the door to her mother's lamp shop was a portal to a magical forest, but instead of trees, this forest was filled with tall floor lamps with colorful glass shades that glistened in the sun.
Today's writing prompt:
