For the struggling writer attempting to craft the Great American Novel (or Great Ukranian Novel…let’s not be too nationalistic over here), one of the hardest things to do is to come up with an opening line. So, as a general public service, I offer six (yes, count them…six) random sentences you can use (and free of charge) to start your work of great literature:
- I just met a girl named Marietta.
- Robert was his Christian name, but he preferred to be called Billy.
- He bartered his frequent-flyer miles for the detail work on his car
- After receiving the military honor, the penguin returned to his home amid the muted fanfare.
- It was not common, but neither was its occurrence rare.
- Marvin would argue with anyone who would listen over the fact that “data” was a plural noun.
Please, no need to thank me, and I hope to have more soon.
