SOOOOO, I'm trying to write a story but I have no idea how to start it? :? I could go with the main character waking up or something, but that seems kinda stupid since I'm trying to make the story dramatic

It is only a novel... or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language
