Hello all, I'm new here and I'm happy that I found this writing forum. I'm writing a romance about a 18 y.o. gothic girl who's searching for her vocation of life. The story tells how she feels in love with several painters and live with them in an abandoned house where they all gather up together to talk about their life. All of them are 23-28 y.o. best friends, but when they meet this girl, the conflict begins. Well sorry for my poor English, because I write this book in my native language. The biggest problem is that I know the middle part of the story and the ending. But I don't know how to write a beginning. How do she meet these painters in her life, because she's too simple schoolgirl living with her grandmother in one city and they are living in the other city. Should I begin telling it from the end when she's 26 y.o. and has already found a love of her life and her vocation of life? Or should I begin from her adolescence? The hardest part is to think HOW they met each other and WHY they met each other. I want this beginning catch a readers eye immediately from the first sentences. It should be very uncommon and unexpected. Please help me with some ideas. I would be so grateful.
