Originality is hated and pretended, but the real thing is beautiful

Where to start?

Where do you start a story?

“Standard practice is to start a narrative in the middle, when things are already happening, but starting as events reach a conclusion or their aftermath cuts down on length and hones discipline. Logically the later you leave it the more information you’ll cram, so starting after the universe ends should cover all bases, but in practice this disappoints all but the general reader.”
