Want to write a fantastic work of fiction? Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. This book takes you through the steps of writing a story from beginning to end. Learn how to gather inspiration and develop a story's characters. Then visualize and organize your story's plot with a writing map. And after you've written a really rough draft, check out tips for revising your work. You'll also be inspired by unique writing exercises and storytelling insights from popular authors. Whether you want to write a puzzling mystery, a lighthearted romance, a dark sci-fi epic, or a tale that borrows from your own life, a blank page can be the starting point for a powerful story.
