Getting started on your story

Filed in Getting Started, PrewritingTags:

Welcome to the first of my many series. This one, appropriately enough is all about getting started on your story. These will usually go like so: A short descriptor of what it’s about and how it will help on the first day, and, after that, longer, more detailed posts. So let us begin:

Writing is a very open-ended process, and it’s ultimately up to you to find a way to create your story. It can also be an extremely daunting task, especially if you don’t even know how to begin, or what to write. In this series I’m going outline some ways of getting started and, hopefully, getting a whole story or five written.

Also, thinking about it, the way this is arranged, I could run into one of two problems: One, I could run out of things to write about before the end of October, meaning I’ll have to find some way to carry myself until November, for NaNoWriMo (a competition of sorts where you have to write a 50,000 novel in a moth), or, more annoyingly, I could have too much material and have to delay the start of my blogging about my NaNoWriMo experience, and the things I learn until I get that out-of-the-way. We shall see what happens.
