First Sentence is Hardest
Hi. I'm new here to Lulu but have been writing unprofessionally (no books published) for almost 9 years. I love to write historical fiction and my favorite area to write about is Ancient times. However, I want to try something new by writing about a British soldier during World War 2. The book, or what little I have planned of it, will be told through letters this soldier will write back home to his disabled younger sister. I know this will consist of a bunch of research in an area I am not familiar with, but I have a bit of a problem. I have no first sentence to begin writing the book. Any tips or suggestions on how to start the book? Thank you for all your help and I am sorry if this is in the wrong place. I am just figuring out how Lulu works.
