WIFYR 2012 Day Two

Every beginning should beg a question--that's the theme of agent John Cusick talk's on writing the opening bit that'll grab an agent's/editor's attention.  How did THIS happen?  How did the narrator end up here?

It's a good talk with lots of concrete examples.  Makes me want to get better.

"Call me Ishmael." Plese feel free using several hundreds of pages running with that one.

I like this concept of engaging the reader early on.
