I have always been told that i have a great imagination and i generally have no problems coming up with stories, i love thinking up complex stories with lots of twists. I love sci-fi, asimov in particular. I prefer my stories to have a hectic feeling, with the protagonist often out of the loop. The problem i have is never being able to get the start right, i cant seem to start it the right way, i have trouble with the very first line. I never had much practice as i have dyslexia and used to avoid reading and writing, i still thought up stories but just never put them down. Ive recently tried starting with a brief history of the human race post contact (after alien contact) literally giving dates and events etc, the history part ends with a object crash landing on a remote human colony and it being retrieved and hidden by the locals (this part being a hundred or so years before the start of the story) The next step is introducing the main character, he wonders drunk into a local army recruitment booth in a rough ghetto on earth. I just cant seem to introduce this setting, or the main character for that matter.
