Question
Hello Nori! Thank you for offering your help. I am 24 years old and have never been published or written a book. I am constantly generating ideas in my mind for interesting book topics, subjects and characters, but I never do anything with these thoughts. I am interested in writing a book, and I am wondering if you have any advice or resources that can help me through the basic steps of organizing my ideas in order to begin the bookwriting process. Is there a common template to follow? Do I need more experience with book writing before I delve into this? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
Sincerely,
Nicole

Answer
Dear Nicole,
Thank you for your question. At my site I have posted the Fiction Writer's Workshop, see
http://steamboats.com/writing.html
That should help you get started on your story.
Also, whenever you get an idea for a character or plot, write it in your journal. Later, you can refer back to it for ideas.
I encourage you to write your book, but don't quit your job to do it.
If you have any other questions, feel free to write back again.
Sincerely,
Nori
