Think you can do a beginning better than this old dog? Check out Staci Troilo’s five for Friday on Story Empire…
Ciao! Today is a “Five for Friday” post, and I thought it might be fun to see how a novel begins.
I don’t know about you, but I find beginnings to be difficult. I’m an outliner, so I have a plan when I start and I know what I want. But getting in the groove and finding just the right way to open the book? It takes me a while.
I thought we could look at the progression of beginnings today, as penned by one of my favorites: Snoopy.
I have to say, my beginnings aren’t that good the first time through. (Yikes!) 😩
So, I put it to you, SEers. How do you feel about your beginnings? And what might your next line be? (Gotta get the king in there!)
Let’s talk about it.
