Useful information
I read this and think it's quite useful as it reminds writers about such things as what things should be utilized when beginning a story.

The first time I was writing, I decided I was going to see if I could write a novel. I decided what I wanted to have happen (overall). I just wasn't sure how that would come about. I'd written the beginning, which introduced the main characters.

I realized after a read-through that the beginning was predictable and maybe boring. It was edited and revised it. Another writer had taken a look at it and mentioned something I hadn't thought of. I had a possible threat to the women's lives, and unknowingly foreshadowed the ending of the story.

I am surprised that nobody has commented on this.
