Writing Tip — 50

maythewordseverflow65001212015

When working on the first draft of your story, whether it’s a short story or a novel; do not fret if you don’t have a perfect opening line to  hook the reader.  Remember, what you are writing is a rough draft and if you sit there trying to find the perfect opening, you are wasting valuable writing time. Get the first draft written, then go back and write the best opening line you can. It may take you several tries,  but don’t let it get in your way of writing the frist draft.

  1. So true. I once just put a placeholder at the beginning of my book so I could get back to it later. I just used ‘It was a dark and stormy night’. It worked.
