Here’s a great post from Jean’s Writing blog on the topic of taking your ideas to story.
Do you understand how to flesh out your ideas?
Not me, I’m still learning. Taking an idea and writing a full novel is not easy, not easy at all.
Writing sounds so easy when an idea burst into my mind like fireworks on the 4th of July. But, as they say, the devil’s in the details. And then I’m stumped.

Reading books and articles help me. One of my favorite go-to bloggers is Janice Hardy over at Fiction University. She gives writers good step-by-step instructions to take an idea to finished story.
Another great resource is She Writes. This is a great source for tips on how to flesh out a scene. And isn’t that what makes up a chapter? Scenes?

- know what the scene is about
- can I relate to my character’s emotions
