At the Fall, 2012 Southern California Writers Conference, writers read the first two pages of works-in-progress. The goal of this workshop is assessing the 'hook-ability' of the first two pages. Do we know what this story is going to be about? DO the opening pages invite readers to turn the page to read more?
Terrific workshop discussion facilitated by Marla Miller who adds her assessment at the end of each discussion.
In this 10 minute vignette, listen carefully for the 'narrative arc' of this memoir/self help book. Did you hear it in the first 2 pages? Do you know what this story is about?
