So I'm rewriting chapter one of my novel, Red Star Sheriff, and I'm curious, which opener do you think works better? The original? Or the rework?

If you have an opinion, … Continue reading NOVEL INTRO REVISITED: WHICH WORKS BETTER AND WHY?
BEFORE WE GET too far into this, let me just say this now and profusely, this will be getting into heavy spoilers for Star Wars The Last Jedi.
