That ever-important first line

"Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages will show."

Coming up with that first line - the line that defines you and sets the tone for all musings and imaginings to come, the line that grabs the readers attention like a blast of cold, January air, the line that can be the source of sleepless nights and tossing and turning and annoyed husbands because of the aforementioned tossing and turning - can be difficult.

Therefore, I'm borrowing from Dickens in this first blog. I'm hoping he won't mind. It just seems such a fitting beginning. Kudos to Charles for that! I just wonder how many insomniatic evenings were the source of it.

For those that don't know me, welcome to my new blog. For others, feel free to follow my old blog, but nothing new will be added there; so I suppose it would be a rather dull pastime.

Happy reading and writing everyone!
