In the first 1000 words, what is going on? Do _you_ (not some royal you) open with a mystery (for example, the body is laying on the floor and two characters are talking about it, whodunit?)? suspense (for example, one of the two characters talking about the dead body is holding the smoking gun and pointing it at the other character)? character insight (you are using first person voice of the person holding the gun and he asks himself what is he, a single parent who grew up a ward of the state, going to do about his three-year-old child and why did he ever shoot the person on the floor and, oh god!, why can't he take it back)? horror (swarms of blood-sucking maggots armed with razor teeth fall out of the body on the floor causing it to deflate like a balloon and they begin moving towards the two characters who are ooking around and realizing how small the room is)? something else?
