Starting a piece of writing with an attention grabber is a good approach to securing reader interest. Hooking the reader with an attention grabber such as a question, a surprise, or maybe a quotation creates a desire to read on to see what happens next. Even if all the information in the body of the essay is solid, it’s important to get the reader to that point with a good attention grabber. Starting an essay with an attention grabber ensures that your audience will want to keep reading.
