Stories can be so hard to GET STARTED!!!!
Today I really tried to start working on my latest story. I sat down at my computer and opened the four paragraphs I already wrote.
I have no idea how I'm going to jump into this story. Usually I start writing at the beginning and work until I get stuck. Then I skip ahead to the "good parts" and write those, usually to the end of the tale. Then I go back and start reading. I edit as I go, then I start to write again. I have a better idea of how I want the middle to go. This time, I really don't have any "parts" to the story. I have a plot and characters. I know the "call to adventure" and everything... I just can't start writing. Hopefully, by tonight, I will be over this problem and will be happily typing away.
