Leading Sentences!

So for yet another challenge 7 post we get to write about exiting ways to start a paragraph. I think that starting yourshutterstock_13590559paragraph or story with a really exiting, eye catching first sentence is very important. I think this because some of the first things people see when they are looking at a post is the image, the title and the first sentence. That’s why you would want your first sentence to be exciting. Here are a few examples of exciting sentence starters.

  • This just in…
  • Today I will inform you about …
  • Why must…
  • Did you know…
  • Have you ever…
  • I can’t believe…
  • Guess who…
  • Guess what…

You could also start a paragraph with a common saying that relates to your post! A new goal of mine is to start my posts with more exciting sentences so if you have any ideas drop me a comment. I hope you start to use descriptive and exciting sentences if you don’t already!

  1. Hi, Jacqueline.

    I really appreciated the suggestion of starting with a popular saying.

    I probably saw the image first.

    If the first sentence is not particularly interesting, I go on until I find/get the information I need.

    I wonder if your strategies work just as well for ending stories?
