Patsy has a post on the famous opening line: "It was a dark and stormy night", and this got me thinking about opening lines. Just out of interest, what is the opening line of your current WIP (novel, short story, poem or whatever)?
For what it's worth (not a lot at the moment), mine is:
I live with my husband in Devizes in Wiltshire where I spend my time writing, reading, riding (I am the lucky owner of a beautiful horse, Blue), and keeping up with my four children and an increasing number of small grandchildren (eight so far). I was for many years a nurse and a Relate counsellor. I have taught creative writing both at a local college and a prison, and I review a wide variety of items - including books - for the Amazon Vine programme.I write to death row prisoners in America, being a life-long opponent jof the death penalty. And I spend too much time blogging..
