First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday #1

This is the second book in the series, I know, but I feel that this paragraph actually represents the entire writing style nicely. So here goes:

A secret is a strange thing.

There are three kinds of secrets. One is the sort everyone knows about, the sort you need at least two people for. One to keep it. One to never know. The second is a harder kind of secret: one you keep from yourself. Every day, thousands of confessions are kept from their would-be confessors, none of these people knowing that their never-admitted secrets all boil down to the same three words: I am afraid.

  1. You aren’t slow! I actually missed that bit out, because the entire first three pages talk about secrets and I just used the first paragraph instead. The third kind of secret can be summarised as a secret nobody knows about, because we can’t understand it or it died with somebody.
