Writing a story is kind of like stringing Christmas lights:
It starts with one bright idea.
Before beginning to write, I make sure to line up my way so I don’t go adrift.
Once I have my path I am ready to get started.
I begin with one sentence that builds to another and to yet another.
Sometimes I manage to come out unscathed and can breathe a sigh of relief.
Sometimes, no matter how hard I try it doesn’t seem to work!
