I was always been told have a beginning, a middle and an end. Me, I’ve always had a beginning and that’ s i
t. Get off to a good start and the rest of it falls into place. As I’ve said in the past you just need one strong character to lead you from page. I have numerous such characters that appear in my novels and they carry the story. Of course it helps that I’ve been exposed to numerous weirdos throughout my life, in fact I’ve had a rather intense life experience to date so I have a lot to cull from.
But, all you need is one, a lead character with a distinct voice. He or she will dictate how the story evolves and don’t be afraid when that character leads you astray or far afield. Follow them because it always works out in the end.Advertisements
