A Good Beginning

The beginning of anything you write is the most important part. If you can't catch someone's attention at the start, you won't have a chance to hold it later. Whether you're writing a novel or an email, you should spend a disproportionate amount of time working on the first few sentences, paragraphs or pages. A lot of problems that can be glossed over in the middle are your undoing at the start.
