All you authors out there, want to share your first lines? I don't mean the first line of your current, well-polished manuscript or recently published masterpiece. I mean the first line of the first book you tried to write. Your first stab at being a novelist.
I recently came across mine: "
The dark sky was underlit with in shades of dusky orange by the electric city night-life - almost obscuring the moon, let alone the stars."
Ouch. Can you say 'purple'? Just as well I never finished that one.
So come on, share!
