Writing Tip of the Day: Avoid This Opening Line. It Sucks.

“Hello, my name is _____.”  An even worse version is “Hello, my name is ______, but you can call me ______.”  If the most interesting thing about your main character is his name, you should probably get back to the drawing board.  Leading with another detail– any other detail– is likelier to interest readers.
