Writing

The Excitement

Starting a new book is my favorite part of writing. I get to delve into new characters, re-visit old ones, and give a new couple their happily ever after. The happily ever after is important to me. I tend to write the end first.

I’m weird like that, I write most of my books all out of order, which is why I’m glad I have such a good editor, alphas, betas, and proofreader. There typically aren’t any plot holes in my books. Sometimes there are typos, but my the story itself is typically tight.

Once I know how my book is going to end, I turn back to the beginning and write the hook. My all-time favorite beginning is “Renegade” – overall I feel like my strongest beginnings are the MTF and the LSERT series. The beginnings of these books are everything I look for in a reader. There needs to be something to pull me in, to make me want to turn the page. I hate info dumps right at the beginning.

I’m the type of person who likes dialogue to start my books off, so that’s how I tend to write them.

What’s your favorite way for a book to start? Dialogue or info dump?

One thought on “The Excitement

  1. I’m all for dialogue at the beginning…… more fun, to me, to dive in that way. Also, Enigma was awesome!!
