I am a big believer in great first lines. "Our mother died three times. I have two of them on VHS tape." I wrote that line years ago, when I first started thinking about writing this book. "Amanda wanted to wear black leather pants to the funeral." That was another one--which shifted in the edit, to "the wake" instead of funeral, as that was factually accurate. Another favorite? "Between dad's death, mom's cancer and our money problems, we completely forgot about the Chilean exchange student." Oh I could go on and on! Just curious if you have any favorite first lines! From our book or others. For me, it really is all about that first line!

Nancye (nancyebuelow) | 2 comments Of course. "Last night I dreamed I was at Manderly again..."

I loved your first line also and your title. What will the title for the movie be now?
