Over the next couple weeks, I plan on writing a short story, and to detail each step here as I go. When it's done, you'll be able to read the final product here on the site.
I know every writer has a different writing process and there is no "right" way to do it. My intent isn't to say "this is the perfect way to do it and everyone should do it exactly this way," but rather "this is A way that I did it this one particular time." Next time I write a story, I know some things will change, and some I'll probably do the same. My intent is to refine my own process by articulating it here, and to hopefully start a discussion amongst us writers along the way. Please chip it if the mood strikes you! I'd love to hear other writer's take on my process.
With that said, keep appendages inside the car at all times. Floatation devices are under your seat and barf-bags have been conveniently placed in front of you in the event or turbulence. Buckle in and enjoy the ride!
