Watch How to Begin Your Novel: A Webinar with Linda Camacho

Agent and writer Linda Camacho shared insights about beginning your novel in our 30 + 10 Free Craft Webinars with Optional Paid Critiques series. She gave us a lot to think about:

  • What’s the purpose of the opening?
  • Openings to avoid
  • When she loves the writing, but has to tell the writer “it’s not a story yet.”
  • How to make your opening distinctly yours
  • Prologues are tricky!
  • How to open a door into your story
  • 5 methods to try in your opening: intrigue, character, voice, setting, tension
  • Why it’s harder to write a beginning before you’ve drafted the end
