Writing: Stage 0.2


Writing: Stage 0.2

It’s been a while since Stage 0.1, so I thought I would give an update. I’ve had some thoughts about how to go about starting. I realised that I needed to have some sort of structure or plan as to how I am going to go about starting this.

Before I delve too deeply into the thick, bubbling stew that is the plot, I want to create a basic structure so I can then focus on creating a back story for the characters. Being able to connect with the characters is an important part of any story, because if your readers don’t connect, the story doesn’t feel as solid. I want to have a history on all the characters so that it’s easier to incorporate them into the story as you can’t forget what you have or haven’t said about them. It also makes it easier to ensure that you haven’t accidently crossed information sets.

Ok, next step, start to organise my ideas into a basic plot.
