Now I've got to go back...

to see how I started all my stories. I never gave any thought to the opening lines of my storis... I guess that shows how new I am at all this. I loved your examples from out Literotica, until I realized that I'd have to match those if I ever want to be a published writer.

fabulous!

Fun to read, as well as chock-full of useful ideas. Especially loved the outrageous hubris! Good luck in the contest Uncle Rumply.

great title

This is a great title and a wonderful foreshadow to the piece itself. Terrific writing advice!

Thanks!

Thanks, Rumple! This is a perfect how-to, and I agree about the title. Beginnings are incredibly important, and your advice is spot on.

An informative how to essay

I don't care how good a writer you are, like anything else in life, you can always pick up some valuable advice. I certainly got that here. These pointers along with the age old keep it simple stupid are words to go by.

"It was a dark and stormy night,"

he mutters while he writes it down in his notebook. Got it! Thanks for the good advice. Still, it wouldn't have killed you to put an actual hooker in somewhere, would it?

Loved the title...

...and the advice. We've discussed opening lines in the past, and I'm glad you shared your insight with everyone here.

Hmm... My opening to "Project Shadow" (Sci-Fi novel in progress)...

It happened. The world ignored the warning, discounting the theorists as paranoid. Why would anyone commit such a grievous offense against humanity? In a democratic society, things like that just didn’t happen.

Ya reckon that works? Good luck, Rumply! *kiss* ~Minx

No fair, Minx

You knew I wouldn't be able to resist.

That rating is for your opening, honest. No, really, it's a good one that should "hook" most readers into scrolling down for more. If you feel a need to tinker, that great first sentence might also work a bit later:

"The world ignored the warning--said the theorists were paranoid. Why would anyone commit such a crime against humanity? In a democratic society, things like that just didn’t happen."

Then that two-word paragraph, "It happened."

Just another way to skin the proverbial cat.

My thanks to Minx and everyone else who R'ed and V'ed and then left kind C's.

This was a very informative piece

One thing I've always tried to do with my hooks is to keep them short, usually five words or less. Such as the first paragraph of one that read: Cupid was dead. Great work Rumple. Good luck in the contest.

So that's it?

So that's what I've been doing wrong?

I haven't been hooking but boring?

Thanks Rumple. Now I have to rewrite 150 stories...

Seriously though, this is a very good How-To with the title emphasising the message. Congratulations.

If I can just find the perfect opening line

the rest of the story often writes itself. Thank you for the inspiration to look for a hook.

You don't get a second chance...

...to make a first impression. Very sound advice, and something I will have to actively think about for my next story...because if I've done it right in the past, it has been by accident, not with thoughtful purpose!

Everyone thinks three years is too late.

But it's never too late for hookin'. Thanks for the How To, even if I am a bit late to the party.
