How many of us judge a book by the first line? It matters more than we think. Post the first line of your first chapter here as an exercise in quality beginnings. This group was inspired by webook's blog on first lines. Post 'em here and let's see how they measure up! A few guidelines to follow... For every line you post, make comments on at least two firstliners. Be constructive and keep in mind that the main point of a great first line is to hook the reader. Leave a rating, 1-5 stars, 5 being awesome and 1 being a bust.
