    I have had this idea

    for a book for about a year or so. It's about a future apocalyptic event (no zombies,) and at least partly about mankind's reaction to the news of the event. The event will be something like an asteroid on the way to earth, but we have 50 - 75 years, or more, to prepare for it.

    You Need To Just Do It!

    First you write, then write some more. Out of that writing an idea may form. Once the idea forms, just keep writing until you have all the ideas and details you will need for writing an outline. Especially if you are writing a plot your outline should be outlining events that...
