The question is: Do you all focus your story so that vital elements (opposing characters, plot lines) are shown or hinted at within the first three chapters with the knowledge that publishers judge books based on them? When I wrote the first draft of my WIP, a fantasy, I was ignorant of publishers only wanting the first three chapters, but the second time round, with an awful lot of rewriting, I find I am becoming extremely focused on showing the reader a glimpse of what is to come, within the first three chapters. However, this is so difficult to achieve while introducing the world and the main characters. I find I am struggling to get my key opposing character and his story in early enough. Should I be concerned or just not worry?
