As I try to envision the visual appearance of this, I have to ask 
whether this is something one should really want to do, and therefore, 
maybe it's not such a good thing to make it easy. After all, you can 
double-click the first word of each paragraph, then make it bold in 
Properties > Text  (in Edit Contents of Frame mode) or Story Editor.
