Hello Rebels, welcome to episode 143 of The Rebel Author Podcast. Today, I’m talking to Sandra Gerth all about how to write great beginnings.
In this episode we cover:
- The most common mistakes authors make with beginnings
- What you need to establish in the first act and first chapter
- How to handle prologues and flashbacks
- How to know when you have the right beginning
This week’s question is: It’s mid year. What one thing will you complete by the end of the year?
