I was asked a question today that I had a hard time answering. They wanted to know how I write. My first response was, well, with a pen and paper, but I knew that wasn’t what they meant. How do I write?
Well, while I’m writing I kind of let the scenes play out in my mind like a movie. I see my characters actions and imagine their responses. I picture their movements, and their facial expressions and try to include as much as I can without dragging it out.
Then they asked, how do you know when to start a new chapter.
again, I picture it as a TV movie. Where would my commercial breaks be? That’s where my new chapter starts. This may not make much sense to some, but that’s how I do it.
