It’s said that the beginning of a long journey begins with a step. In writing, this is also true. However, how you take that first step can be critical into how your readers will judge the opening lines of your story. It’s best to take advice from other writers on how to write a good opening line based on what type of story you have. Don’t try to write a best seller. Write the story you want to tell and let everyone else judge if it’s the best they’ve read.
