Day 64

How do you start writing a new story?

When I start a new story idea, I don’t put anything down on paper for a while. I linger on who my main characters are going to be, what they want and what they’re willing to do to get it. I think about location and why this story is important. Why are the characters important and why would anyone care about it? Why do I care about it? I let this all simmer on the back burner until I have some more concrete thoughts and then I just jot down a quick shopping list of my ideas. Maybe start a Pinterest board of aesthetics.
