How To Write Opening Lines

WE all know the drill. The primary school kids like to start their essays with dialogue, the weather, or the now famous school bell (or doorbell). The secondary school students, on the other hand, can turn to the tried-and-true “define the key word,” or the declarative sentence that directly addresses the essay question: Do you agree? Sometimes rendered with a little twist: To what extent do you agree?

If you’ve built your life around these formulaic solutions, it’s time to say goodbye to them. You can develop so many other creative ideas for that ultimate hook, and walk away with not just a given fact that hooks are arresting and engaging, but the ability to achieve it.

Enjoy some writing practice as we craft hooks to essays you’d likely find in your exams.
