This may actually belong in general writing, but for now, I'm posting it here. If I'm wrong, mods, please inform me and I will move it. My question is this, as a reader and as a writer, how do you prefer your beginnings? Do you like to get to the action at word one of page one, or do you like a slower start, get to know the characters and care for them first? I ask because I've heard both sides and want to hear more. Right now, my MS has a somewhat slower beginning. Action doesn't start until chapter 2. Chapter one is a "normal" day, before fit hits the shan. I'm considering jumping right to Chapter two when I edit, and add chapter one's Scene's as drug-induced flashbacks/memories/thoughts. Thoughts? Question? Concerns?
