I have never liked stories that are written: Jane had always felt like the kind of girl who fit in..... I've never liked stories that just slam a character in your face and say this is Jane. This is how Jane feels. I personally love starting all my stories with either the feeling of the character a dabble in mystery before giving them a name, a setting that sets the mood for characters feelings and emotions, or through an action. How do you start your stories? And with my earlier comment is that bad of me to start my stories the way I do?
