People ask how important the first chapter is, but I think that is getting to
far ahead. For me as a writer and a reader, the most important part is the first
line and paragraph. If I can’t get hooked or hook people right at the beginning
then space and time is being wasted. You want the realm of plausible disbelief
and entrapment straight off to get the most enjoyment from reading. Have you
ever put down a book after reading the first page?
