Where to begin?

As a lover of the written word nothing makes me crazier than getting to the end of a book and feeling like more than half of it wasn’t pertinent to the story.  If they’re too slow, I might not finish the book at all.  So, for me, I spend a good deal of time considering where to begin and end my chapters.  I mean why write something I wouldn’t want to read myself?

This striving for the perfect beginning and ending has caused me more than one headache along the way, but I’m not interested in producing average novels, I want great ones.  Ones I can look back on with pride, knowing I gave it my best.

There are so many amazing authors out there, whose written pacing has kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning, and cursing the sleepless days that follow.  I’m sure anyone who loves to read has had a few of those.  What an honor it would be to have someone curse my books for the same reason.
