I promise you that when we’re through, your book will be irresistible to anyone.
Did that hook you? Are you interested? I hope it did.
That’s the power of the first sentence for you.
Hello! My name’s Tessa Miyazaki, lovely to meet you all!
I’m the head of the matcha editors’ company, est. 2019.
so, let’s set things straight, right here, right now:
We, as Wattpad readers, are all too superficial for our own good. (and please do NOT tell me that I’m wrong; I assure you that if you contradict me, you are too superficial to see within yourself.)
We see the cover and the synopsis. Maybe we’ll see the first sentence. Maybe we’ll even go to the second paragraph.
But if we aren’t quickly hooked, it’s over. That’s it.
S O L U T I O N:
I’m offering this quick bite-size editing deal for all of you who see this message. (A flash sale of sorts.)
If you want critiquing help, reply to this thread with your first sentence. No more, no less. I’ll tell you what I think as well as how I think you should improve it, and then I’ll score it (your standard A-F range).
If this thread overflows, I will shut it down, so this will be first-come, first-serve.
I will get back to you within a few days if you reply.
I N T E R E S T E D?
If you’d like long term critiquing, we offer that too—though as a separate company service.
Reply to this thread if you’d like more information and mark your reply with an asterisk (*). If you would like to talk separately, PM or email us @matchaeditorscompany (on wattpad) or @ email@example.com
