Day 40

How do you start a new story?

Bullet points. I like to make lists of the main story points that I’m interested in telling and then I’ll branch off of those into subplots. The thing that I move around the most is typically the order of events. I always have difficulty mapping out the order everything is going to happen in, but that’s because I’m impatient. With Elements, I made a short list of the main events for each book and then pieced together how each event leads to the next. Once I have a more rounded vision for main and subplots, I use a spreadsheet to organize all of it into individual chapters.
