Writing the first sentence of any project is something that stresses a lot of people out! Maybe you sit down to write your book and you can’t figure out how to start it. Sometimes you’ll have this problem at the beginning of a chapter, a keynote, or an article. The very first thing you say seems like the most important, right? So much so that it can trip you up if you feel like you can’t get it perfect.
- Flesh out content later in the piece so you continue making progress.
- Wait for inspiration to strike you (creativity happens at unexpected times).
- Don’t forget you can get help from an editor.
- Put your self-doubt in check. You can do this!
