my dad and I recently went to Barnes and Noble
to purchase some books we searched the store for my
favorite topic classics out of these we chose
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn A Tale of Two Cities
and Pride and Prejudice while there we got to talking about
first sentences first sentences are usually very good and here
are a few in particular "It is a truth universally acknowledged
that a single man in possession of a great fortune must be in want
of a wife" that was from Pride and Prejudice "It was the best of times it was the worst of times" that was from A Tale of Two Cities.
We also talked about how we should practice fist Sentences putting them into our own words several times each time do it differently practicing this will help to perfect your penmanship and will help your sentences to be the very best they can be (Example....It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man with very few possessions must be in want of a rich wife..... as you can see it's similar with a slight twist if you read A Tale of Two Cites you will see that Charles Dickens changes his sentence a very many times but he keeps them all in his book that is a very good example of what you should do with a good sentence take a famous sentence and change it put your own words in it so that it sounds familiar yet it's different this will help your writing.
Goodbye for now
