I have most the story mapped out in my head. Just not sure where to start. I was thinking about using the first few chapters to introduce and develop the characters. Like one character a chapter until they get together. But I heard it was important to get the main story going in the first chapter. The way I was thinking would introduce some subplots but the main story wouldn't really get going until chapter 3 or 4. Should I just start where the plot starts and just go from there? Is using the first chapters to introduce characters a bad idea?
