At the beginning of the story, the opening paragraph, what should it be like? For me, I thought it would have to include words that would hook you and make your stomach turn. At least, that's what I was told. In my novel that I am writing now, that I just got a start on today, I want the opening paragraph to be one that someone can be like 'whoa, I need to keep reading'. Does anybody have any tips or pointers for me that could make an opening to a book more interesting?
