Writing Tips – Review Your First Lines

Tip #1: Check the first lines of your paragraphs to see if they are interesting enough.

Would they motivate you to keep reading? Are they full of vivid nouns and verbs to capture your readers’ attention?

Tip #2: Read your first lines to see if they track your flow of thought.

Can you track the progression of your main idea just by reading the first line of each paragraph? Do these first lines lead your reader to the point you want to make? Do they act like stepping stones, moving the reader from one paragraph to the next?
