The First 1,000 Words Review

Your opener is the most crucial part of your story. It’s where your readers develop important, often subconscious expectations about your story that will persist for many pages, or even the rest of your book.

That’s why nailing it is so important. And it’s why we offer a review of the first 1,000 words of your story. Our lead editor, Shavonne, provides a hybrid developmental and line-level review of what’s working well, and what could be working better in your opener.
