comment Capitalized opening lines
Are you speaking about ebooks or paper books? I read about people having trouble doing it correctly for ebooks (resizing problems). I haven't tried it myself so I cannot say anything about it. But be aware that they do not capitalize the first sentence. They normally capitalize a certain amount of words in the first row.

comment Should I edit the first draft until I'm totally satisfied or should I leave that to the third draft?
@AlexandroChen: Maybe I wasn't clear enough: you do not say "looking good, I come back to it". You hate in one day and love it the next. The third day you wonder how you could have ever written such a nonsense. There is no metric which can be used to identify "good". Writers make bad judges. At least when it concerns their own writing. No one can please everyone (look at one-star reviews of bestsellers) and that is true for oneself, too. You cannot suit yourself. You love a chapter one day and hate it the next. Cool-down phases do not change that.

comment Am I overusing the words “started” and “began?”
@AlexandroChen, if you think they sound strange without them, leave them in. That's the point.

comment Am I overusing the words “started” and “began?”
Just take them out: "the camera shook", "glasses were dancing on the tables", "Everyone panicked", "crystals were falling like frozen rain". Do the rewrites sound better? Take them. If not, leave them.
