Writer and editor Cat Rambo talks about different starting points for a story, the special challenges and advantages or each, and how to best move from rough notion to completed draft.
There are multiple ways a story idea can manifest: a scrap of dialogue, a scene, a character, a title, and more. Each poses its own set of challenges and pitfalls when fleshing it out into a complete story, but each also holds special strengths that a writer can capitalize on. Come hear Cat talk about the 23 possible ways to start a story and let her show you how to move from a vague idea to an actual, complete draft.
