Question
I have this awesome idea for a book and i writing it.  But it sounds like a story for a four year old.  I can't get my idea on paper, how do i write it down?

Answer
Hi, Sam,

You just do it.  You write down the story and then you spend a lot of time editing it so that it is clear, consistent and compelling.  If you need help I suggest that you enroll in a creative writing course at your nearest community college.  You can learn the technique there.

Happy writing,
Dorothy
