Email RSS. Good writers sweat their engaging beginnings. Leads give shape to the piece and to the experience of writing it. A strong engaging beginning sets the tone for the piece, determines the content and direction of the piece, and establishes the voice. When you write, experiment with multiple engaging beginnings. Deliberately craft different leads. During revision, choose the lead that you believe works best.

An opener is like an appetizer, offering a tasty morsel of what's to come. When you start to write a story, you might not know where it is heading. That's okay.
If, like many people, you labor under the idea that for "real" writers, the plot comes effortlessly, dismiss that illusion now. While some writers were born with a sense of how to tell a story effectively, more of them do study the elements of plot and pay serious attention to how other writers successfully construct a narrative. Playwrights have this stuff drilled into them, but fiction writers often get away without basic instruction in what makes something dramatic. It's not magic. The elements of a good story can be studied and learned.
