It's Monday and I'm in a good mood

I know. That's soooo unheard of for me.

When I first wrote and plotted Brooklyn's story, I had no clue how to start it. Most writers will tell you, the first chapters are always the hardest to get down and they require the most revisions. I don't freak out when this happens. Normally, by the time I get past the first round or two of revisions I can see the opening.

Normally.

That didn't happen with Brooklyn's story.

I've been beating myself up because I just couldn't see where to start the story. Yesterday, after a series of writing exercise, I didn't come up with one possible opening, I had three. Three.

Funny how the universe clicks, don't you think?
