Ok, I have read a few of the posts on the site about how to start a story off and they were very informative. Now, I had an idea one day for how to start a book and I wanted to know if people here think it's good or if it's a flop. It is a Fantasy based story and the beginning is what popped into my head one day. Picturing this woman in armor standing on a hill, an army behind her (She is leading the army), facing another army. It's a decisive battle but it hasn't yet started and as she looks out and survey's the scene unfolding before her she thinks to herself "How did we come to this?" At that point it jumps back to the beginning and leads up to that point somewhere in the middle and continues on to show you the outcome. So, there is my idea. Is it good or terrible? I'm always open to other peoples ideas and insights. I hope this doesn't count as "reviewing" if it does I'm sorry I didn't mean too. I'm more focused on if its a good way to start a book or not.
