Hi Julie,Great idea for a blog feature. Will you be doing it regularly? I'm a writer who does an entire workshop on first lines of pieces of writing, be they books, articles, or even love letters. Those first lines have to be memorable!
I'd like to. Please suggest more first lines! And congratulations on Boys of Steel-- I recently learned about Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster on a PBS documentary. And I'm a Ross MacDonald fan.
Oh, forgot to thank you for your congrats! What PBS documentary? Can you email me via my blog?
Julie, you have to hear it as read by Stanley Tucci. The new CD version of Shrek etc. is UN believable. Meryl Streep!
One of my favorites is from a book most of us have not read yet most of us know intimately:"All children, except one, grow up."Makes you insanely curious, excites yet also saddens, all in six words.
If you go to www.kidderlit.com you can sign up for a first-line-a-day email. Fun to guess what book they're from.
Thanks Jen! I'll add that address to this post.Thanks too to Paula and Marc.
