Tip: Hooks keep a reader reading. Your chapters should end in hooks, not with someone going to sleep. If your character sleeps, so does your reader.
Thought for the day: “Once I’ve got the first draft down on paper then I do five or six more drafts, the last two of which will be polishing drafts. The ones in between will flesh out the characters and maybe I’ll check my research.” – Colleen McCullough
Jumpstart: June contains the following national “days”: Rocky Road Day, Gardening Exercise Day, YoYo Day, Juggling Day, Flag Day, etc. Choose two of these and combine them, then have your main character celebrate them in some way.
