Prompt #3 Hook, Line and Genre

7 Oct

The opening line of a book or the opening image of a movie has to set the tone and draw the reader in.

Look at this list of genres (if you’re interested, you can find more here). For each one, create an opening line that establishes the tone and sets up a story. For added fun/challenge/time-wasting, once you’ve completed the list, choose your favorite opening line and write a few more paragraphs of that story.
