Hi Noah, number one fan, thank you for asking this important question.
I think the first line is important but not sink or swim.
It need not be a story unto itself.
The first page, however, is vital, and it is amazing how much you as a reader know by the end of page one.
Are you a Stephen King fan, Mr Noah ? Me too.

A fantastic way to start any piece of writing is with a quote, song, or poem. It makes the reader go " Wow."

The other thing is, As a writer, it would be easy to become fixated on the first line and never progress further....

I hope this answers your question :)(less)
Al Stewart Hi Claire.

Who does Oskar Braithwaite claims to be?

“I'm pretty sure between us we're not even a packed lunch.”
Debbie McGowan, Beaten Track

“Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.

This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse. Then come close to Nature. Then, as if no one had ever tried before, try to say what you see and feel and love and lose...

...Describe your sorrows and desires, the thoughts that pass through your mind and your belief in some kind of beauty - describe all these with heartfelt, silent, humble sincerity and, when you express yourself, use the Things around you, the images from your dreams, and the objects that you remember. If your everyday life seems poor, don’t blame it; blame yourself; admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is not poverty and no poor, indifferent place. And even if you found yourself in some prison, whose walls let in none of the world’s sounds – wouldn’t you still have your childhood, that jewel beyond all price, that treasure house of memories? Turn your attentions to it. Try to raise up the sunken feelings of this enormous past; your personality will grow stronger, your solitude will expand and become a place where you can live in the twilight, where the noise of other people passes by, far in the distance. - And if out of this turning-within, out of this immersion in your own world, poems come, then you will not think of asking anyone whether they are good or not. Nor will you try to interest magazines in these works: for you will see them as your dear natural possession, a piece of your life, a voice from it. A work of art is good if it has arisen out of necessity. That is the only way one can judge it.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“If I went back in time and killed myself, would it be murder or suicide????”
Eric

“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”
Ernest Hemingway

Noah "And Superman unrolls
A suit before he lifts
But I'm not the kind of person that it fits...
Where'd you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can miss
I want something just like this..."
