I’ve been writing stories since I learned the alphabet, but I’m still no nearer to knowing the recipe for writing a book.
We are told to make elaborate outlines or basic outlines. Or we can just make it up as we go along. That’s what pantsers do, and they scorn the outliners, claiming that outlining kills creativity.
I’ve found that the only muse killer (and I believe in the existence and assistance of the muse) is NOT writing. The muse never wrote a single word without my active input. Ideas mean nothing if they aren’t transformed into alphabet soldiers.
So, the secret to writing a book begins with writing.
