I just noticed what the problem is: There's no such thing as "Begininings."

Don't suppose you'd accept half a chapter 1 for a chapter 5, wouldja?

Beginning, you gotta start somewhere and that's where they grab you. It works for film and literature.
Kafka punched us in the face by telling a climax at the beginning so we got hooked ebcause this guy is a bug.
Kubrick told us the end of the movie in Lolita at the very beginning but gave us a resolution at the end.
The beginning is the right choice of words in a single sentance and after that the story rolls out, in my expirence. The problem about the ending is the best sounding way but you gotta whole book to figure that out, the beginning demands it from the get go. Remember Billy Crystal in Throw Momma From the Train? Yeah it's sorta like that for me.

Oh, sorry, I'm stopping at chapter 20.
If you have something less than 20, I'll trade a chapter 5, a backup chapter 17, and a second round draft pick. Smile

Forget the Chapters.

Isn't it harder to come up with the Titles?
