A Novel Idea: 9/6/2016


As a writer, keeping inspiration going from week to week can be tough. We want to change that. The point of A Novel Idea is to get your writing juices flowing even when you don’t feel like writing. We also want it to help you dig deeper into what writing looks like for you and let you share it with the world. We’ll be posting installments weekly, all focused on four things: characters, your novel, you writing process, and writing prompts. Follow the weekly guidelines and post it on your blog, then link up with us! We’d love to hear from you each week.

When you first get a story idea, what is the first thing you do? How do you develop it further? Do you write it down and let it simmer for a while, or do you start writing right away? Do you use Pinterest, outlining, or brainstorming in your plotting process, or do you just wing it? Tell us everything!
