EDITING AND CHAPTER 1

I have printed my full manuscript and I am slowly but surely working my through it. The editing is going well and I am even enjoying it. Surprise, surprise, I know. I think it is probably because there is no rush with this book, as it is the second book of my Immortal series. The first book is currently with my agent.

I have had a great idea for the third book in the series, but when I went to sit at my computer, I had a bit of a hard time writing the first chapter. I always find writing the first chapter of a novel to be the hardest thing. I find it hard as I never really know where to begin and how much information tends to be too much. I know that I have to get the reader's attention from the get go, but I don't want to confuse anyone either. I think I have to check out the first chapter of my favorite novels and see how the professionals did it.
