Improve Your Hook

We’ve all  heard that a writer needs to draw in their readers with a great hook, but how do we do it?  Establish who is your protagonist and what is their flaw. Draw off that flaw as you write your hook and connect your reader to your protagonist. Propel your reader into action. Try to set the mood in the setting also and how the protagonist relates. Throughout the story, you have to think like your protagonist and what they would do. Their flaw must get in their way and the protagonist doesn’t realize it until the epiphany part of the story.
