2016 #ROW80 Round 1: Check-In 11
In addition to the outlines and the planning I mentioned on my previous updates, I started two stories this month. They both sit at a little over five hundred words. Generally, a reader decides if a story is worth it within the first couple of pages. There are two cliches I don’t like to use when starting a story. First, using one of the characters’ names as the first words in the opening sentence, and secondly, starting with dialogue.
Those are my preferences. What about yours?
