It should be easy, all you have to do is make something so enthralling it grabs your reader’s attention and holds it until the very end of the book! You’re itching with excitement as you sit down at the keyboard, you touch your anxious fingers to the keys, and… you don’t do anything because you have no idea how to get started…

Before you throw yourself down the swirling spiral of despair, listen to this episode for five easy tips that will help you start your story with a punch.

Katy thinks it’s weird to write about herself in the third person but is willing to do it for the sake of this author bio. She is a humor writer and lover of fairy tales. She prefers the gory originals to the squeaky clean Disney retellings but will gladly consume both. Website | See more of Katy's posts
