It would be great if I could tell you this is how I write when a new story fills my brain, but trust me… I am not this organized. I do make notes for future scenes that have played out in my head, but mostly I just write what the characters tell me and it all seems to pour our at the perfect time for the most part. To be honest I do most of the things in this list, just not in this order. The most difficult part is the Core Concept. It is hard for me to make up one sentence to describe the entire novel. I do not see how people do it.
