This might not sound like a big deal to some, but for someone who has been just trying to figure out where and how to start, this sounds like an overwhelmingly major deal.
How do you take characters that have lived in your imagination for so many years and bring life to them on paper enough to do them justice? Then there are the blurry characters I know are there but have not shown themselves fully in my mind. These are the one’s I know will appear out of the blue while I am typing one day.
Is my story line original? I have never read a book like the one living in my head, but there are millions and millions of books out there… that thought alone is daunting. I just have to keep telling myself that because I have never read a book like mine, means that my characters will be original and mine, making this my book.
So where do I start? I have tried the beginning but have had little luck, perhaps a detailed outline? I have only written one before, it was for one of my fan fictions, the story was a sequel and I was having a lot of trouble, much like now. But then I also had a lot of readers waiting for each new chapter, I won’t with this one, I am not going to release the book until it’s published, though you might get small pieces as teasers and when I really need help with something.
So an outline it is, here is a very basic summery for you.
This is the first book in a trilogy about a small group of young adults in there first years of college. When they stumble across a chest in a dirty attic they find a mystery that will take them on an adventure no one ever thought possible. Science Fiction/Fantasy. Includes time travel, new planets, massive supernatural evil villains, and new friendships.
Wish me luck!
