In the beginning sketch / outline the project
Writers cut the pieces of characters from the fabric of their lives. The total experience, define and cut the aspects to build characters, chapters, plot lines fitting for the project.
The blocks of the story bring all the aspects of development together fitting and sewing the pieces together in a plot lines & story thread.
Three layers creates a viable project: the base serves as the foundation with all the solid craft such as spelling, grammar & form, the insulation in the middle gives the depth of feeling, and the top provides with all the colors, designs and details the story needs to be gripping.
With talent and practice the storyteller brings all the elements together binding them into a unique story we hope is endearing, entertaining and enlightening.
Just like a quilter, writers receive confirmation they’ve competed a worthy project when they have a warm fuzzy feeling.
