>Been reading the crap-o-meter at Miss Snark’s website…seems there was a contest of sorts where people could send in the “hook” for their story, and Miss Snark gives them feedback. She got 700-some entries…wow.
Now she’s in the process of remarking on each one. It’s probably the most instructive thing I’ve seen in years on how to write a hook that will entice someone to read your story…or conversely, how to turn them off. Reading them, I’ve been making up my own mind about what works and what doesn’t, and that right there has been incredibly helpful.
Not that I can do it yet, but I do see what works and what doesn’t a little better now. Looking forward to reading the remaining entries.
