This looks great, Emily. Getting the ball rolling vs. falling off cliff is fine. 🙂 It’s bringing the hero and heroine together and often in a romance that is the inciting incident.
And since we know Emily’s story goal is tied closely with Caleb, it makes perfect sense that the inciting incident would involve him, too. Nice work!
Phew. Okay, great. AND I rewrote chapter one with a much better sense of what needed to happen in it. Hooray for useful workshops!
