How to start your book... Oh, jeez! Who doesn't lock up a bit from time to time thinking about the beginning? It can be intimidating thinking about the first page! What do I include? How do I show the world, engage the reader in the conflicts? What is the best way to introduce my characters and get the story rolling?
This week Holly and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) go over what differentiates weak beginnings from strong ones and how you can dissect your own. We provide from-scratch examples as well as discuss previous works, using these as case studies.
We also discuss briefly a few important topics at the beginning of the episode, especially questions that Holly has once again been getting from listeners regarding the level of education as a limitation on their future as career authors. I think you'll be encouraged.
After the episode: Have something to say? A question to ask? Jump into the FREE forums at HollysWritingClasses.com (no purchase or ownership of courses necessary) and share with us.
