Great opening paragraph 75… ‘Diary of an Ordinary Woman’ #amwriting #FirstPara

Margaret Forster“26 November 1914. Father said if I want to keep a diary I must begin it on New Year’s Day. He said no one starts a diary in November. But New Year’s Day is five weeks away and I do not want to wait. I don’t see why I should either. Why should diaries have to start on 1st January. It is tidy, I admit, and I am a tidy person, but that is all.”
‘Diary of an Ordinary Woman’ by Margaret Forster
