I don't like the opening 20 pages at all. I'm working on it, but it's not easy. Why? Because I don't want the book to disappoint. The problem is the story of book 2 picks up in a very, very, very different setting to the first book.
So, am I being too harsh on myself? Do I need to try a different approach? The answer to both is yes. I am being a little obsessive about book 2's opening, and I've got to accept that it can't start the same way book 1 did.
The good news is the rest of the book is going fine, and I know the right beginning will come to me. I've just got to wait for the idea to hit me ;)
