A smart man once said, “you won’t get anything done by planning.” I say smart – he’s actually a complete moron (before you say anything, no, it wasn’t me). But for all the many, many dumb things that man has said, there is actually a little bit of truth to this. You can spend all your time writing, but at some point you’re going to hit a wall. Enter, stage left – the plan!
Ok, so you want to write a story? That’s great! You’ve picked up a fancy pen and some beautiful paper (or you turned on your computer, if you’re like me!), and you’re ready to write. Fantastic! So, where do you start? The answer may surprise you.
That would be me!
