Designing Your Novel
Good stories do not happen. You have to make them happen with wonderful design. Designing makes the writing process easier and yields better results. It is a lot of work to get the designing perfect.
Start your novel with small stuff. Then build-up your story based on these small design elements. This helps you to get your creativity organised and structure your novel.
It is very important to think about what to write and accumulate as much information as you can regarding the topic. This research will come in handy when you are writing a detailed novel. Allow your characters to speak to you and give you directions for designing your novel.
Get your ideas organized into a piece of paper and then think about which one you can choose. Take a lot of time to write the first part of your novel. Writing your first sentence and getting started is a crucial part. Keep each sentence not more than 15 words. at first, stick to description of each character rather than giving names. It helps you to remember the character better.
After writing your first line, it must be easy for you to move on with building the character and writing more. Keep a story board beside your writing area so that you know the character’s name, story line, nature of the character, goal of the character, the character’s beliefs etc. Do this for each character so that you do not get carried away.
Again, these are just ideas that can get you started. How exactly you want the novel to turn out is certainly in your hands. Get started and have fun writing your story.
