Recently, I’ve been invited to chat with Sacha Black from the Rebel Author Podcast.
We talked about how to write great beginnings for your story, and we covered important points such as:
- The most common mistakes authors make with beginnings
- What you need to establish in the first act and the first chapter
- How to handle prologues, flashbacks, and flash-forwards
- How to hook readers
- How to know when you have the right beginning
