Sometimes, in movies (the only one I can think of recently is Seven Pounds with Will Smith) and probably books too, the opening scene is of something that happens later in the story- in my case a small glimpse at a moment of extreme low for the character in the future. However, I'm concerned if whether this is OK to do. The second chapter would be the 'real' beginning, or do you think it would be better to have a small snippet in the very beginning of the first chapter, do one of those triple circle deals, and then begin with the 'real' beginning? Also, if I do begin with that, how should I approach the scene when I come to it at it's chronological place in the book? Should I just rewrite the scene as it comes up, or skip it? Or even just do a small description so the reader can understand that this and the very beginning of the book are connected? Please, I need help. Thank you.
