Inspirational Journeys Presents: Using Action and Foreshadowing in your Opening Hook

Hello everyone in the blogosphere. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Welcome to my new followers! May you find my content to be of value as you learn and grow during your writing life and author journey.

In today’s episode of Inspirational Journeys, I answer two questions about the writing life that I saw in the writers life twitter chat last night. One of the answers I’m sharing is in response to a question posed in the same chat a month or so ago. The questions are as follows:
Can you use an action as your opening hook?
Do you need to write a second hook if you use foreshadowing in the beginning of your story?

For more information on using action in your opening hook, check out the article linked here:

I answer both questions and I even add a third tip that’s related to the second question in the podcast episode and accompanying YouTube video. To watch the video, visit:
