Hookers & Hangers Blog Hop


The lovely ladies over at Falling for Fiction are hosting the Hookers & Hangers Blog Hop and I'm a proud participant.

Today we're celebrating chapter HOOKS, so, as directed, I'm posting three separate first sentences from three different chapters of my Work-in-Progress, entitled The Crazy Part.

Hook #1: Everything looks the same as when she was alive. 

Hook #2: When Daniel was a little boy he almost drowned in a creek.

Hook #3: Once Isaac is gone, I recommend shooting the interview with the naked-man statue directly behind me to hold the audience’s interest, but nobody else latches onto the idea. 

I'll be back on Wednesday with last-sentence Hangers!

If you'd like to check out other great hooks, there's a participant list >>here<<. I can't wait to hop around and read everyone's.

  2. Curious... Do you come up with these great hooks when you're writing your first draft? Or is it something you work on later?

    Those are awesome!!

  11. I like both #1 and #2 ... I think I like short sentences or something. LOL. Maybe my attention span is getting shorter as I get older.
