4. Use an infinitive phrase as a subject: To get a head start was his goal.

5. Begin a sentence with a prepositional phrase and end it with the subject: From out of nowhere came a loud shriek.

6. Begin a sentence with an adjective: Sad about being alone in the house, the puppy lay down and waited by the front door.

7. Begin with an adverb: Regretfully, I will not be able to attend the wedding.

8. Begin with an "ing" participial phrase: Muttering to himself, the old man shuffled throughout the house.
