What to put in your first chapter.
Be specific in your first paragraph.
Make sure the reader knows within the first two paragraphs:
- Who/what the story is about (the plot).
- Why the story is unique.
Consider the following…
Did you have dialogue in your first chapter? How “dense” are your paragraphs…are there breaks of dialogue between them?
How many generalizations are you making within the first chapter of your story? How vague vs. how specific are being about what is going on?
In your author’s note, remember to thank your readers!
