Every Story Starts With One Thought


Every year, millions of books go unwritten because writers are waiting to formulate the perfect storyline before putting pen to paper. Sound familiar? If it does, don’t wait any longer. Get yourself in front of your laptop, now, and start typing because the perfect plot, the perfect characters, or flawless manuscript will only come to you when you do.

Every story starts with one thought. My The Guilty Woman novel started when I saw the sentence “OH GOD! OH God, oh God, is he dead?” in a book I was reading. Taking that one line, I got myself to my laptop and ran with it. I wrote whatever came to mind. From those few words, the storyline began to formulate, and seventy-thousand words later, voilà.

Now, get to that laptop and start typing. Start to lay the foundation for a book. Your book. Write. Write, and write some more. Read what you’ve written closely. I guarantee that when you do, the book you were meant to write will start to come together with ease. The outline will flow, the plot and characters will come together, the scenery will formulate in your head, and before you know it, you’ve realized your dream.
