- How do you write? Do you write all your work out by hand first then type it up?
My style is like this:
- I come up with the characters first: I remember reading a famous writer (can’t remember whom) say that get your characters first, then worry about the actual premise. I couldn’t agree more. Say, I was going to write an adventure story. I would start off by thinking about who my protaganist is, what s/he looks like and how they feel about the weather. I would then think of whether I was trying to write a burlesque of Moby Dick or come up with an unique way to tell the characters story.
- I write all my notes and ideas down for the character, story, setting in my notebook: I cannot type straight onto the computer. My ideas flow better on paper. Not sure why.
I’d love to know what you lot do!
