Love/Hate Wednesday


The writing advice in this post, particularly #1 & #5!!


Floating voices.

When a manuscript opens with dialogue, I have no idea how to frame it. I know absolutely nothing about the characters, the plot, the backstory; it's just a floating voice.

Don't think that opening with a really catchy dialogue line is a great way to snag in the reader - it's more disorienting than catchy!
