"Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine" by Gail Honeyman I haven't been listening to a book for some time now, men since I've seen this one "everywhere", I looked for it at "Storytel". It was available there, and I choose to listen to it in its original fashion. In English - with Scottish and all. And …
Oh, my goodness! I wish I HAD a beginning! At all! Even if it were the worst of all times!
(And I DO mean for a novel or a short story or something. 😉 Otherwise, all is fine…)
Ciao! Today is a “Five for Friday” post, and I thought it might be fun to see how a novel begins.
I don’t know about you, but I find beginnings to be difficult. I’m an outliner, so I have a plan when I start and I know what I want. But getting in the groove and finding just the right way to open the book? It takes me a while.
I thought we could look at the progression of beginnings today, as penned by one of my favorites: Snoopy.
I have to say, my beginnings aren’t that good the first time through. (Yikes!) 😩
So, I put it to you, SEers. How do you feel about your beginnings? And what might your next line be? (Gotta get the king in there!)
Let’s talk about it.
