Just Start Writing

The first step always seems to be the hardest, and when it comes to putting pen to paper, it does not seem to be any different. The trick is to just start writing.

Creativity and Design

One idea is to start thinking about a cover design and images that reflect the plot of the story. Images have a way of speaking to a person, and they can often express the emotion of the words on the page.

Editing is Divine
