Hook, Line, and Sinker: How to Start Your Story
 
 
You have the story idea, a brief outline (or not), and enough motivation and/or preparation to place your fingers on the keyboard and think, Let's begin. But how does one, in fact, begin a story? How do you select the perfect scene to situate your reader without putting him to sleep? It's easy to become overwhelmed by the sea of possible beginnings before having typed a single word. This article provides a list of different ways to begin a story, long or short, pointing out their respective advantages and disadvantages. The right beginning can give you just the push you need to send you flying into the world of your characters.
Prologues
A prologue is a scene or chapter that pertains to the story without featuring your protagonist at the present time. It might show your hero as a child; it might show your antagonist plotting to take over the world; it might show a

Nightstar1231
The First Slinky Bender
United States
Name: Nightstar1231
Fave Color: Yellow
Fave TV show: Teen Titans!
Fave Candy:Hershey's Chocolate
I'm Nightstar1231. I love drawing, hate school, and want to be an illustrator someday. (I aspire to be like Gina Biggs or Nicola Scott) I am absolutely obsessed with comic books, The Legend of Korra, Once Upon a Time, Touch, Young Justice, and Adventure Time. However, while reading comics is okay, I like to make up my own ideas for characters and storylines, so hopefully one day those will turn into a real comic book. Right now I'm really into the Kingdom Come storyline from DC, so I've got a bit of a story going along for that, but I also have ideas for a superhero team and for a little ninja that will take the world by storm. As you can see from my picture, I am the world's first ever slinky bender. My sister was just playing with a slinky she got from a party, and I fell in love with the things, so I've acculmulated a collection of them, including a bracelet and giant slinky. I do requests, art trades, sadly no comissions (no Paypal or anything, and I'm not good enough to do my art for money yet anyway) I'm also really into crafts, mainly latch hooking, cross stitch, keychains, and customized shoes, which will go in my Crafts section of my Gallery. I stand for nerds and derps! Feel free to ask me anything or just to talk, I don't bite! (Though I will poke)

Current Residence: U.S
Favourite genre of music: Neo Classical and Classical
Favourite style of art: Cartoony
Operating System: Vista
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano (yellow)
Favourite cartoon character: Batman, Kaldur from Young Justice, and Toothless from HTTYD
Personal Quote: "You Monster!! Now I'm Wet!"--Phineas and Ferb
Interests
As a starving college student, I have decided to try out a new venture to earn a bit of money for school and art supplies. I have opened up an Etsy shop. Or rather, I opened one up a few months ago. Now, I'm just shamelessly self-promoting it. 

Stitch Me Sideways is a new shop that sells cute and geeky cross stitch patterns, keychains, pencil cases, and other merchandise! I'm always coming out with new characters to sell, and you can even order a custom pattern or piece if you don't see something you like.

Come visit at:
 www.etsy.com/shop/StitchMeSide…

And follow me at www.stitchmesideways.tumblr.co… for updates on merchandise, progress, and other shop news!

Hey, I'm sorry it's taking me so long to get the drawing up (I'm actually kind of afraid that it's terrible) I started school about a month ago and have been super super busy :/ I'll try to get it up tonight or in the next few days

Sorry I've taken so long to answer. Comic-con and a beach trip have made me really busy. But I'd love to do a trade if you're still intesrested. :)
