Autobiography – the hook

You’re writing your autobiography. What’s your opening sentence?

Since I’ve actually completed my Memoir, I can tell you what the first sentence is! Haha.

However, this writing prompt asks for the first sentence of my autobiography, so that’s a different ‘animal’ altogether.

My first sentence would probably be “growing up as the black kid in an all-white family is not the hilarious mis-adventure it looks like on the TV”.

To be so ‘other’ is absolutely heartbreaking.

That’s all for today xx

  1. Wow! Incredible! I want to know more……

    The first sentence in my memoir is,

    “My life ended before it even began.”

    I have no idea what it would be in my autobiography. Maybe, “This is a story of survival…..just barely.”

  2. For me if I ever wrote it would be “A lifetime of one foot on steady ground and the other always sinking.”

      2. You’re making the wise choice, there. When (and if) you feel like you want to write your book – you’ll feel driven to do it and it will hopefully enjoy the challenge 😉

    2. What about, ‘One foot on shaky ground and the other in my mouth.” I always seem to have my foot in my mouth at any given time. 😋
