I spent a lot of today at a bookstore in the Young Adult section and then went to Fiction and Literature. I looked at covers and observed what caught my eye, tried to pay attention to why and then I read the first lines of over 100 novels in both sections. I noticed whether a book was written in 1st person or not. I overheard teens selecting books and then putting them back down. I took myself out for a salad and wrote notes about my experience. While I was at lunch I looked over twitter, most of which was about writing and books. I came home and wrote first sentences for my WIPs. I had a delightful day! What is your first sentence and why?
