Welcome to this fortnight’s Writing Tip Wednesday. Today I have a great link to The Write Life website, to a post written by Chuck Sambuchino titled ‘The Worst Ways To Begin Your Novel: Advice From Literary Agents’.
I’m having a bit of a hard time figuring out the best start to the YA urban sci-fi I’m writing so I couldn’t have found this article at a better time.
We all know how important that first chapter is, it may be the only chance you get to sell yourself, so it better be good. In this article agents give their opinion on how not to start your novel. Maybe one of the agents you are thinking about submitting to has given their opinion? You can read the article here
I found it really helpful.
Happy writing/editing 🙂
