been learning lots about back story, the importance of a first chapter delivering mood, setting, voice and a hook. my original 1st and 2nd chapters set up and deliver the inciting event, so i've moved them back 1 notch and written a new 1st chapter. this story is different from my previous chapter posting, and tells the story of a crew who journey to the edge of the asteroid belt to confront an alien hostile. if anyone cares to give it a read, i am interested to know if there is a strong enough hook to draw you in and fill you with questions that would keep you reading/wanting more. thanx. h.
