Give your story its best start!

The best beginnings possess a magical quality that grabs readers from the first word and never lets them go. But beginnings aren’t just the door into a fictional world. They are the gateway to the realm of publishing–one that could shut as quickly as it opens.

You’ll learn how to develop the big idea of your story and introduce it on page one, structure opening scenes that encompass their own story arc, kickstart your writing with effective brainstorming techniques, and introduce a compelling cast of characters that drive the plot. You’ll also examine the best-selling novels from different genres to learn the secrets that experienced writers use to dive straight into a story.

With thorough examinations of voice, point of view, setting, dialogue and conflict, The Writer’s Guide to Beginnings is a must-have tool for luring your readers in with your opening pages–and convincing them to stick around for the ride.

“Writing a book? Hard. Writing the beginning of a book? Rocket science! Strap on your spacesuit, because thanks to Munier’s nuanced, actionable breakdown of every possible aspect of a gripping opening, authors everywhere can now take their books to the stars.” —K.M. Weiland

Writer’s Block: A short story about a very long book

Ralph Jeremiah Johnson Token stared at an almost blank sheet of paper. Two lonely words were written at the top: Book Description.

He scratched his head, looked out the window for a while, and then went for a walk. When he got back, the page was still blank.

“I don’t know how to describe this book!” he said to the heavens, as if the appeal would somehow summon divine intervention.

“Confound it!” He stared at the page, willing the words to appear.

It remained blank.

“It’s about me, and Mr Tolkien, and time travel…” He sighed. “I guess people will just have to read it if they want to know the plot.”
