Why did I choose to change my opening paragraph? The first one was boring. Even I fell asleep while I was reading it, and I'm interested in the subject. I needed something catchy in the beginning--something with a lot of oomph. I read back through the text and found what I was looking for. Naturally, it was embedded back on page ten. But I've heard that sometimes you don't know what you're going to say until you've said it. Well I wrote the beginning on page ten. And I chose to move it to the beginning. I think that the information that I had on page one is still useful. Maybe there is another place I can use it later on.
