You have an idea for a new novel or you receive a writing assignment for an anthology. Characters and plot lines are flying around in your head. Do you reach for a pen and begin jotting notes, construct an outline, and develop a chart, or are you better off merely allowing your new story to flow?
“What to do?” You pace back and forth in a dither, unsure which is the better approach.
Can’t figure out where to go for help? Might we suggest the tried and true? Who better to provide you with an answer than author Angel Nichols, who has agreed to be Guest Quill for the 3/1-15/15 Pen & Ink session?
This session’s question? There’s both writing a story and constructing a story. How do you approach the two?
Before you pay for years of intense therapy, might we suggest that you grab a pen and paper and get ready to take some notes. There’s no telling what you might learn from an answer that’s come from someone as successful and talented as Angel Nichols is!
