"Do not have your story began with the main characters reflecting on life, thinking about their current or past situation, or contemplating doing certain activities. If the opening introduces something unique happening, or about to happen, chances are you have an appealing hook. Start at the moment closest to the beginning of the main conflict of your story as possible."

From a post by Sherry over at Dark Angel Fiction. Read the whole thing here. Good reminders if you've heard them. Good lessons if you haven't.
