Finally! The first line!
I've been trying to start writing a short story, and I know the entire form of the story, and the characters, and their histories, and what happens. But what I didn't know was the opening line! Finally, today, it came to me. I've got a couple hundred words started on the story now. First lines are so important. Without them, the entire rest of the story either shows up begrudgingly or not at all!
