Revision and openings

Consider these questions:

  • What kind of story does your beginning promise readers? How do you know? Which words make the promise?
  • Which words or phrases establish the POV in your story?
  • How are readers introduced to characters? What are readers’ first clues to their personalities?
  • Is there an implied question in your first sentence? Anything at risk? If not, which strategies have you used to interest readers?
