The Daily Opinion – Writing

How do you capture your reader’s attention?

For example, I normally start my short writes with an image. I like writing in a style that tries to grab the mind and then either says something funny or something possibly insightful. How do you write? Do you have a set style? Are you constrained by the 5 sentence a paragraph, stringent English and grammar rules that possibly also confine your style? Do you blog the same way you write other literature? What is your style?
