Writer’s Digest: 10 Ways To Start Your Story Better

Here’s an article from the Writer’s Digest email newsletter written by author Jacob M. Appel  about getting your story started so that people will want to continue to read it.

A highlight:

“Think of every opening line you write as a pebble tossed down a mountainside: The stone may jolt back and forth within a limited path, building up force, but the trajectory of its initial release largely determines its subsequent route. Never forget that the entire course of a story or novel, like an avalanche, is largely defined within its first seconds. To craft a compelling story, you must first launch it in the right direction.”
