How to start a romantic story?

discussion

#21

Many Wattpad books start that way. I have never ever read a published book that starts with the character waking up, showering, and going to school.

I can give the example of the book I’m writing. My first chapter starts out with my female MC, June, walking into a classroom – she is disabled and the bully of the class shouts something insulting at her. She gives him a sassy retort.
This immediately introduces you to June, how she is perceived, and what her personality is like.

To state it broadly, give me some kind of conflict in the first chapter.

Waking up and taking a shower isn’t going to tell me anything interesting, because most people do it every day.
