First page...

I've written five novels and dozens of short stories, and I've written hundreds of first pages. I have folders full of first pages. That's where I find my tales.  If the first page doesn't make me want to keep writing, I figure it won't make a reader want to keep reading, so I lay it aside and write the first page of another story. I keep doing this until I hit on one that clicks. Sometimes that takes a while.

 

Henry's books.
