FACT 1  When you begin a sentence with a
prepositional phrase, you need to separate it

hid in the root cellar. FACT 2  Sentences that
start with prepositional phrases are always
interesting.  If you ever want to make the first
sentence in your story sound even better,

phrase. Example "Toward the deafening sound
like thunder, ... "Under a piece of wood dropped
from a lumber truck, ... "On the highway between
the two towns, ... "Among the crowd of
on-lookers, ..."
