First Lines

I love looking at the first sentences of books, just to see how the author catches the reader’s attention and makes them curious to read more.

While thinking about that this morning, I considered my own first sentence. I’ve never posted any of my personal writing on this blog, because I’d rather have it go public when it’s published. But once sentence couldn’t hurt, right?

The kitchen tile sent shivers through Anadora’s socks.

I suppose it’ll have to do 😉 Want to share your first line? Or even a favorite first line from an already published text?
