I'm very interested in the difference between "to start something" and "to start on something."
For example, do you feel any difference between the two sentences below?

(A) Have you started your homework? Finish that soon, and I'll let you watch TV.
(B) Have you started on your homework? Finish that soon, and I'll let you watch TV.

I'd appreciate your opinions!
