It's the age-old question: how can I make people interested in my book from the first page? Scores of writers have tried, and scores have failed. Lucky for you, not all hope is lost. There IS a system, and working it the right way will get more people interested in what you have to say quicker.
Follow these guidelines and you'll be on the right track!
#1. INTRODUCE THE MAIN CHARACTER ASAP.
#2. RAISE A QUESTION ASAP.
|Well, that escalated quickly.|
#3. STRUM THE READER'S HEARTSTRINGS ASAP.
#4. DELVE INTO CHARACTERIZATION ASAP.
|Make unique characters!|
#5. GIVE YOUR MAIN CHARACTER A GOAL ASAP.
#6. CREATE CONFLICT WITH THAT GOAL.
