Our Story’s Real Beginning

Our Story's Real Beginning

Almost all of the articles I read on getting a novel started these days are about good planning. Good planning helps us avoid writers blocks or painting ourselves into a corner. This is true – outlining and planning (at least a little bit even if we like to write organically) is very important to help give us direction.

But the truth is that outlining a book is not the beginning of the process. What are you outlining? What is our seed of an idea, our concept, that we want to turn into a story? Finding a concept that we think we can follow through to the end of a great story is real beginning to our writing adventures.
