Today we were talking about how second chapters are hard. The way I see it, they’re the uneasy bridge between establishing the scene (chapter 1) and getting immersed in the action (chapter 3). The way my friend Dani saw it:

“Chapter one is like when you meet somebody in a noisy bar and you come away with the vague impression that they’re cool. Chapter two is when you agree to give them a lift somewhere.”
