You’re looking for something.
If you’ve read my other posts, you will probably know by now that I write with a friend of mine. There are a lot of different perspectives about the idea of writing with a friend, so I’d like to share my opinions on the matter.
Write how your protagonist and their best friend or their closest ally met. Did they become friends immediately? Did they dislike each other at first? Were they forced into working with each other? Were they old school friends? Is your protagonist’s best friend imaginary? Are they the protagonist’s pet, or an animal of some kind?
First sentences, first paragraphs, first pages and first chapters need to be gripping. They’re often described as the ‘hook’. If your first chapter is boring, the likelihood is your readers are going to put the book down, and they won’t get to discover what amazing stories lie afterwards!
This is one of the sections I’ll be addressing! This is a glossary for all those words writers use that you just don’t know the meaning of. I’ve probably missed some of them out, because I’ve got used to them now, but if you want to know the meaning of a word, comment below or in the Forum!
