Writer's Block: Once upon a time…


What is the first line of your favorite book?
If it is the favourtie opening line wanted I will have to pass, but if it is actually just the opening line of my favourite book, I still couldn't decide but was able to narrow it down to three.


"Too many!" James shouted, and slammed the door behind him. - The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper.


At dawn one still October day in the long ago of the world, across the hill of Alderley, a farmer from Moberley was riding to the Maccelsfield fair. - The Weirdstone of Brisengamen by Alan Garner


Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small, unregarded yellow sun.- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.


One thing I have learned while reserching this is never go to TV Tropes if you value your time. It won't have been wasted there, but will be gone none the less.

I think it's probably my first LJ entry.

HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN HHGTTG?

Good choice!

The Dark is Rising. I feel like I need to read this. I've heard it mentioned quite a bit.

"For a long time I used to go to bed early." Swann's Way Proust

I genuinely do love that book and re-read it often. More than the others in the series, really.
