It’s important to have a mission for your business, for the way you want to live your life, and having one for your book is no different.
It’s about making that bold statement of where you want to take things. It sets the tone. It's what you re-read it before you start writing for the day.
Technically, your books premise is a couple of very succinct sentences that sum up your entire story.
The other 60,000 words are just all the descriptors.
You have your basic premise and now you need to thing of all the awesome plot ideas that will take your story from start to finish.
You also need to decide who is going to carry out all the ideas you think of. Character development is crucial to engaging readers. You need to create characters readers will root for.
Thinking of ideas is easy it's sitting down to write that can be the harder part.
You will determine roughly how long your novel will be and then work backwards to see how many words a day you will write.
You will receive motivation to keep you on track when the going gets tough.
Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. I can help you with that!
