Sometimes writing isn't so much a problem of what to write but how to start it.


Our handy tool below will hopefully give you a few ideas about starting your story. It may even spark off ideas in your head that will give you an idea for a story.


In our opinion, the first line of a story is so important as it sets the tone for what is to come. Once upon a time maybe is used a little too much. You need something bolder to draw the reader in.


Below are some first lines we have thought of, some we have used ourselves. Click for another random first line :)
