Snowflakes - no two are the same. And you'll see in this book that first sentences are like snowflakes. Each first sentence, numbering over 1,000, have been placed in a category or two or more: Time, Weather, Name, Location, Short, Long, Death, Metaphors/Similes, Character Description, Quote, Question and Miscellaneous.
If you are a writer, see how others have started their novel. Was it with a single word? Or did it go on for 4 lines or more? Perhaps weather was involved - rain has been popular. Perhaps one of these sentences will spark an idea for a new chapter or a whole new book.
But you don't have to be a writer to enjoy the book. Any reader can get quite a taste in this sampler. You can read 20 books at a sitting and stop to make a call and then come back for 20 more. You don't have to wait until the end of the chapter like a book, but stop at any time - IF you can.
