On Writing

 

Let your characters guide you.

For me, the story building process begins when a crucial scene pops into my head, usually one in which the main character's in trouble. I keep wondering why he or she got into that trouble and how I can get them out of it. That's when the plot starts to develop. When I've got enough of an idea of what will happen, I start writing it down.
