I always like to start with something interesting to hook on the reader. Mine: They were chased through the dense forest, the oak trees glittering high above them.

I try but I don't know... I think the rest of the Prologue is better, though. xD

Bathed in the red light of sunset, a little girl stumbled as fast as she could through the grass, her long auburn hair streaming out behind her.

1st line of The Twilight Talisman.

Default All my decent stories that I have begun. And some that are just meh too.

Hemlock: Any man is but one step away from madness...

Steel Wire: Back and forth I walk, caged behind that steel wire

Outcast - Many Minds: This is not Now. This is the time Before

Necropolis: There was once a story of why people should not have built upon the Island of Ghosts.

Nine: Kabbad Ryiume is a name all knew. He was an old fisherman, who lived in the swamp, where your surname was said before your given name.

Of Tigers and War: It was not quite snowing; it was edging more towards sleet, or maybe just rain. Either way it was cold enough for it to freeze overnight.

Severing the Link: Midnight had been and gone, disappearing with a blast of the hurricane that roared around the stonework of the solemn castle

Von Schiller: It's traditional, I suppose, for the writer to drag the origins of their tale back as far as possible.

"But Mr. Locke, how does that make you feel?" was the first line of my NaNo novel last year.

“You are late, Ms. Lee.” The teacher said. Reinold drummed his fingers on his table, sliding them over the smooth surface. He had no care for whoever the teacher was yelling at -- he didn’t recall anyone in his homeroom with the last name Lee. Probably just the old cow getting mixed up and yelling at the air again.

-First paragraph of Lorelai-

I wasn’t sure what woke me. Maybe it was the gunshots that resounded all-too-loudly inside my head, or…
God, what is it? I hesitated, still clutching the blankets up to my chin. Demons? Jesus, it's not a Hell Hound, is it? A Portal? Wait– is it Benedict?

-First few lines of Wanted List-
Which I got immense help with from Nikki, btw. <3
