Getting Drastic- by ria, on Friday, 11th February 2011, 11:24am
In case any one is interested, I just cut the first 5 chapters from book 1. It doesn’t get exciting until then. Now I need to come up with 15,000 words of a more exciting start for this book.
Why are beginnings so hard? I guess it’s because so much has to be introduced, and at the same time it has to be well written and engaging.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and working on my query has really made me see how dull the first five chapter were. Now to come up with something better.
