I am currently in the middle of beginning my novel. I have a list of ideas of events that I want to take place in the novel, my characters, a plot.. basically everything that I need to write a story. Now that I've done that, I can't seem to write my very first sentence. I'm not sure on how I can introduce my main character. The story is on my life and what I've been through. I don't want to start the day I was born because that would be a little ridiculous, I'd be writing forever. Some of my major events in life happened at even 5 years old.. I'm not sure if I should introduce my character around the time my "conflict" in the story begins. Any tips people have for me would be extremely helpful! WRITERS BLOCK IS A NIGHTMARE!
