The first few pages of the first chapter serve a vitally important purpose to the survival of your book.

Setting the first word, first few words, first phrase or sentence, or the complete first line of each chapter in small caps, sometimes preceded by an initial or drop cap, is done by the typesetter in the course of the interior design of the book.
Hmm.. it depends on what kind of setting do you want to start out with, and it also depends on the nature of the book. For example, if it is an action-romance that is spy themed, maybe you could start off the book with the environment that your ma. A Mapquest aside.

For the first few days, many newborns are remarkably quiet and sleepy. But by two weeks old, a typical newborn will cry about two hours a day. (Crying usually increases until about six to eight weeks of age, then starts to taper off.) Over time, it'll get easier to figure out why your baby's crying. At this point, run through the most likely. For those first few hazy moments I felt almost normal, the way I used to feel, before the Hunters had come under threat. But as the empty shoes by the back door slowly slipped into focus, a wave of nausea passed over me. Everything came back.

The First Five Pages is one of the first theory books on writing I've ever read. Because I learnt so much from it I bought my own copy, and since I'm editing my second book now I figured it was the perfect time to read it again.
The blurb isn't kidding when it hails The First Five Pages as the one book every writer needs to own, or at least read.4/5. The difference between The First Five Pages and most books on writing is that the others are written by teachers and writers.

Noah Lukeman is not trying to impart the finer points of writing Cited by: 4. Your first page should probably actually begin your story rather than consist of a prologue.

Something I've always wondered. You've probably noticed that in some newspapers or books, the first few words of a chapter/story are bolded or capitalized, similar to initials. For example: This image isn't from a real book, it's from an SE puzzle parodying a newspaper.
It. In the first few chapters of this book, we introduced the notion of supply and demand. One of the first things we did was to derive the relationship between the price of a product and the quantity demanded per time period by an individual household. Now we have derived what is called the aggregate demand curve.
The two look the same and both. Book value: How much is your book worth. A.L. Burt, and Grosset & Dunlop, to name just a few, would use the printing plates from the original publisher and reprint works long after their popularity was established.

Earlier this week, I read “Poppies,” a short story by Ulrica Hume. Initially, I had only planned on skimming a few pages, but the first line hooked me. Before long, I was finishing the last page.
Great first lines have that power, the power to entice your reader enough that it would be unthinkable to set the book down.My first thoughts: Rowling starts off the series with a lot of mystery--the Dursleys are trying so hard to be 'normal', and yet they are hiding a big secret.A GREAT secret in fact.
This mystery pulls the reader in right away because we want to know exactly WHO is 'the boy who lived' and WHY the Dursleys are trying so hard to be 'normal'.
