My ABC's of Writing: Brought to You by the Letter I


We've almost been at it for two weeks, folks! Almost there! For this Thursday, we focus on the letter "I."


The idea.

It sparks something within us. It could be something we see on TV, another book we read, or something we observe in our daily routine. That seed of an idea turns into a concept...which turns into a setting and characters...and eventually, a story. Maybe it's a poem. Maybe it's a comic strip. Maybe it's a painting.

The format isn't important.

What is important is how the idea wraps itself around our mind so tightly, we have no choice but put it out there for others to see.

A is for AGENT
B is for BETA READERS
C is for CRITIQUE GROUP
D is for DESCRIPTION
E is for EDITING
F is for FICTION
G is for GENRE
H is for HUMOR
