So far, I have written down some ideas for a few short stories, and a 3-part series. One is just a few sentences of a high level story plot, and the serial has the generalized plot arc. I havent yet fleshed out the stories, or what type of characters will tell the story.
I have also been reading several articles and sites on the web to help refresh my writing education. Writer’s Digest, Poynter.org, Learn to Write Fiction, and hatrack.com (Orson Scott Card) are the most common reviewed. I have also purchased OSC’s Characters and Viewpoints to help me understand how to really develop my characters.
I need to learn which outline method I should use, as my previous method of writing was just to write until I exhausted my ideas. This may still apply, but I hope my stories will have more continuity.
