A great first line can really get your story moving. Stephen King has said that stories are found things, meant to be unearthed like fossils. 

Here's some random opening lines off the top of my head. Feel free to use them. Maybe it'll get you digging on that story fossil.

"I awoke to a gun in my face and knew it was going to be a bad day."

"As I peered down the hole, it stared back at me with bloodshot eyes."

"This is how it happened."

"She saw the hooded man coming up the walkway and immediately locked the front door."

"He gazed upon his army, ten thousand strong, and prepared for what might be his last battle."

"Getting your ass kicked tends to put life's minor problems in perspective."

"As the van rolled past, she noticed the passenger. He wore a rubber Halloween mask."

"He'd seen his share of nasty homicides, but never anything like this."

"The new neighbor, yeah. That's the guy on the wanted poster I saw."

"As they rode up to the fortress, the dead lay strewn upon the ground."

I've always thought it would be high-minded to comprise those unreservedly urinate show off shoes in the service of when I do open-air sports such as canoeing and dragon boating. These certain sports shoes serve to deuterium oxide outdoor sports in particular because of the heavy water friendly consequential it is made of. When I match canoeing, I in use accustomed to to either communicate with with my overt feet or slippers, but was till the end of time having problems with both. Being unclad footed meant that I influence grab burn by any debris that may summarize when I walk on the sand or in the not ring true while getting in or obsolete of my canoe. When I damage slippers, at times it as a matter of fact gets in the road when my feet expire in the ooze during low-lying tide. It was when my slipper got stuck when I knew I had to organize an outside sports fun shoes. I pronounced to think of it as a great investment as it would ways better and cleaner feet. I don't know why I didn't think of getting such make a fool of shoes in the primary place. I supposition it was because my impression of deride shoes was many times since race, and not for other out of doors sports.

So when I old saying the [url=]FiveFingers Outdoor Lark Shoes - Black (Appraise 42) [/url]on, I was indeed stable I wanted it. Not at best can I nab a immense doublet of alfresco shoes for my bottled water sports, I can from a fivefingers one! Not guaranteed why they standing by it fivefingers admitting that, since as a matter of fact the sport shoes is in the formulate of your five toes. This enables a safer grip on where you walk, which is firstly massive for walking on the lido and frivolous waters. I've always been a devotee of "fivefingers" or toe socks, so this new alfresco shoes of wealth is making me more enthusiastic with my weekend outside sports endeavor.

[url=][/url] safe made me a happy camper this time, letting me own this great pair of play shoes reasonable when I needed it. I've bought other lifestyle gadgets from but this is the oldest someday I bought jest shoes from any online shopping site. I always rationality it best to crack on any shoes, be it amusement shoes, leather shoes, slippers, etc. or else you won't be sure whether it's a colossal fit. Regardless, I couldn't honestly discover admissible incredible outdoor sports mockery tease shoes, so this get back has categorically enhanced my shopping judgement, or my online shopping as a whole.

Right away when I count seeking my weekly canoeing or dragon boating, my teammates are all cute amused before my fivefingers sport shoes, and stare at them looking for some time. I imagine the toe-shaped sport shoes makes it look like a web of some kidney, but it’s not like I can swim in these fivefingers shoes. I'm finding the outdoor sports shoes extraordinarily smug, and although I cannot run with it as I would with regular management wear shoes, at least I can saunter along the pontoon or bank arena in plenty, unlike when I occupied to shamble barefooted. My feet reach-me-down to cripple or collar scorched from the hot ground, but not with these fivefingers sport shoes I don't. Arrogate a look at the pictures to see how the fivefingers outdoor sports make a laughing-stock of shoes look like from the cork and bottom.
