First sentences

Okay, I just finished reading the first sentences of fifty manuscripts in a writing critique on a blog. It was surprisingly helpful with my own writing -- even if all I now want to do is beat my head against a wall until a more interesting first sentence comes out -- because I got to see what happens when things just really aren't working. And the advice the other writers were getting and giving were things I could apply to my own writing. It's definitely worth checking out.
