Good morning, Sunday starters!  This week's activity is easy-peasy.  I like to make learning our craft as fun...and as easy...as possible, because the actual writing is super hard!

This week's activity is simply about observing how you react to words on the page and thinking about it a bit. Have fun and enjoy your writing week.

Sunday Starter for 9-16-12:

Search the picture books in your library or local bookstore.  Find five with a great first line.  Then find five with beginnings you dislike. Why do these beginning lines work or not work?
