Re: Opening Scenes

I've been wondering if its worth writing an opening scene that "they'll" cut in rewrites but it'll get the reader to stick in there. Something along the lines of what we used to see in trailers but...

Re: Do people know the circumstances of the Mary Celeste?

To be honest i thought the anecdotal story of the MC was far more a part of folklore than it is. If it was well known then a 3 minute digression to show my version of what happened was worthwhile. ...
