Ask and Editor! (with Swoon Reads)

Did anyone else check out NaNoWriMo’s YouTube video Ask an Editor! (with Swoon Reads)?

The interview was really insightful and has made me seriously reconsider the opening section of From India. The editors from Swoon Reads recommend opening your novel with your character making a decision. I think this is a really interesting idea as it provides a pretty unique insight into the mindset of the character.

I’ve added a link to the video here. I’d highly recommend checking it out if you are interested in hearing a little bit more about what editors are and are not looking for in new submissions.

What does everyone else think?

Would you consider rewriting your own introduction to fit this structure?
