Having trouble with your text? Struggling to get those words on paper?
Here's a bit of inspiration for you.
Check out Susan Berger's post at The Pen and Ink Blog for a sampling of first paragraphs from the Cybil's Finalist List. Susan notes that four of the books also made the ALA list.
If you don't recognize all the books then perhaps it's time to expand your reading list. I was impressed and couldn't resist putting a few more titles on my "To Read" stack.
