The Other Ways to Screw Up Your First Pages

Okay, a quick review. In the first few paragraphs of your manuscript, you need to hook your reader and created reader identification and suspension of disbelief.

 

But that's not all you have to do. There are three other small matters to attend to within those very very FIRST paragraphs. (Hey, nobody said it would be easy. If you're not doing the these things, that's probably why you're not selling.)You must:

 

• Prove you have a voice

• Begin your story

• Avoid giving an editor a reason to say no.

 

Stay tuned.
