Does anyone else struggle more with the beginning of a story than any other part of it? I just finished fleshing out (as opposed to drafting/outlining) chapter one of this fanfic I've been working on all summer. I've finished just about all of the rest of it; even polished the ending, but I always struggle the most with the first chapter. I'm pretty fuckin' proud of myself; I'm just going to fine-tune it in the morning with fresh eyes and then I can finally start posting shit! It's frustrating for me, too, because I very rarely write stories in order; I work on whichever chapter I have ideas and stuff for at the moment, and since I struggle with beginnings, usually the only thing keeping me from posting chapters is that I don't have the first one done >.< Please tell me I'm not alone, Iwaku; DAE? PS: I'll be posting it in the museum once it's polished, so prepare yourselves!
