    Writing is a release for me....I have always had this passion....as a child, I loved to read and would create stories in my mind, and knew I wanted to be a writer, or an actress where I could act out the scenes myself. A chance to have a different identity, if only for a short...

    Where to Start?

    I have an excellent idea for a novel, but I'm not really sure where to start.  Unfortunately, no one ever described the starting process in writing a novel, thus I'm a little lost when it comes to where to start.  Start with an outline?  Do you just begin to...

    The Next Stephen King
