The decisions you need to make before you start writing your book

Making ChoicesHere is another set of slides from a presentation that Gettysburg Writers Brigade founder, Will Hutchison, made to the group. This one involves some of the choices you need to make as you set out to write your book.

You can click on the link below and download the slides from one of these lessons about creating a story.

Before you begin to write your novel, you need to make four choices:

  • Who are your characters?
  • What is your setting?
  • Who will tell the story? (What’s the point of view?)
  • How will your story develop?

This session from Will also looks into how to go about outlining your story and creating a synopsis of it.

The slides are packs with lots of information and examples, but you will get much more is you can actually make it out on Wednesday evenings to join in our group discussions. This week we’ll be talking about getting your manuscript ready for publication.

We meet every Wednesday at O’Rourke’s Eatery and Spirits at 44 Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg, PA. We meet in the second-floor dining room at 7 p.m. Come find us.
