There’s nothing like staring at a blank word document in my opinion.
It’s a rush like no other.
The possibilities are endless.
What will my characters do? Look like? Say?
Will they survive the trials I have in mind for them?
As a writer, this is my favorite part of the process.
It’s just the two character’s names (sometimes I don’t even have those when an idea hits) with a bunch of ideas sprouting out.
Looks like a mess of chicken scratches, but that’s how I work.
How do you guys get ready to start writing your novel?
If you’re not a writer, what’s your favorite way for a book to start out? A bunch of action? Dialogue? Right in to describing the scene?
