Beginnings and Endings [Joan Leegant]

We’ve all heard the rules: no starting with a ringing alarm clock, no ending with a sudden flash of insight. Useful suggestions, but they won’t get you far when it comes to your best opening and closing, which depend on the voice, tone, subject, and overall sensibility of your story. We’ll look at some great—and not-so-great—examples and talk about what they do for the reader and why, as well as how to apply what you discover to your own work.
