Every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end. One cannot exist without the other-how very Potteresque uh? Well I’m sitting here arranging the story moving around elements and series of events to determine the best way to tell the story that aligns with the timeline of events. People think that stories just happen. They think that you sit and write nonstop and somehow you end up with a perfect manuscript. No, no, it isn’t as simple as that and it doesn’t happen that way obviously. Pssh, I wish.
However, it is as simple as sitting down to write. Write anything really as long as you write and exercise what you know and build on it.
Writers out there what are your approaches?
