Writing Books/First Steps
This is my first attempt at writing a book. What are the first steps for writing a book? How much of the storyline should you have worked out when you begin writing?
Thank you :)
Thank you for your questions. Congratulations on starting your book. At my site I have posted the Fiction Writers Workshop, see:
If you work through the questions in the workshop, then you will have covered most of the ground you need to cover. The main thing is to know your charcters inside and out, as though they are real people in your life. If you know them and you put them into a situation (your plot), then you will know what they will do. They will take over the story.
If you have any questions after looking over the Fiction Writers Workshop, please feel free to write back again.
