This is all about my latest WIP and how it starts with capturing a reader’s attention. People today have such a short attention span, a writer has to work hard to get their attention and retain it. SO, my current WIP, a Christmas story, begins with a problem. A big one and an emotional one to boot. Do you like books that start with trouble? I think that having conflict from the first page is really good. It catches the readers attention, it keeps them reading, and it is oftentimes fun to write. I didn’t always think that way though.
