Start with freewriting

Open up a google doc or take out a notebook and simply start writing. You can describe a life event that relates to your theme, describe the main character of your novel or provide advice on a particular topic. Let all of your thoughts flow freely. Don’t try to correct your grammar or organize your thoughts–just write!

Start with an outline

You may be more of a structured, analytical person. In that case, begin with an outline or categories for writing. For example, if you know you want to write about relationships, come up with 10 topics or potential chapter subjects or titles. Then, take the chapter you know the most about and begin freewriting.
