“What? I Thought Every Writer Knew This” Said the Snarky Editor

The running theme of this year’s James River Writers Conference, in my opinion, was the significance of first pages.  Panelists which consisted of agents, editors and authors all stressed the importance of getting right what should be in those first pages of your manuscript as well as what should not be in there.  How what is at stake, where the story is taking place and whom the character is we should care about had all better be laid out concisely right out of the gate.  The annual JRW conference is an affordable wealth of knowledge.  Do not forget I am on Twitter.  Click here: TY 
Happy reading, writing or whatever:!)
