foundinghouses | Harry Potter Aesthetic: Beauxbatons Academy of Magic | “We only accept the finest witches and wizards, for we will teach them to become great role models and leaders here at our Academy of Magic.”
Skip the boring beginning to your novel. Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games all get the ball rolling by sending their heroes an invitation for adventure. You can weave in background information as the hero makes preparations to set out. This way, the reader is curious to catch-up, instead of waiting for the action to begin.
