Question
I'd love to become a published author but writing a novel seems like an incredibly big project and i really dont know where to start.How do I begin to get ideas down and organise my writing?

Answer
Dear Hayley,
Thank you for your letter. I encourage you to pursue your dreams, but do it for love (writing's not the best way to strike it rich). At my site I have posted a Fiction Writer's Workshop. The key to writing fiction is to know your characters inside and out, just like you know the real people in your life. If you know them, you will know what they do and how things turn out. The Workshop helps you to get to know them.
Also take a look at the posting on how to find a publisher. See:

I hope this helps,
Sincerely,
Nori
