Two Steps to Get to Know Your Story

Approaches to Storycraft

Before you get started writing your book, it’s a good idea to acquaint yourself with the story you want to tell. Now, I will say that this might feel anti-climactic for you spontaneous pantsers out there, but just hear me out.

Knowing the story you want to write does not mean you can’t still dive headfirst into the story world with no plan, no plot, no strategy. I’m not talking about outlining or plotting or anything that will constrain you from freely exploring your ideas.

This particular advice won’t affect your pantsing proclivities, but it will offer you solid footing as you first step into your world. From there, it’s going to be up to you and the process you choose to write the story. Regardless, clarity and focus at the start of your journey can go a long way in helping you stay reasonably on track with your story, thus enhancing your enjoyment.
