I am a newbie when it comes to writing. I have done some writing for myself but nothing for others to read. However, my desire for that has changed. I would love to write something that people would actually enjoy reading. I dream of being published. I have a lot of questions. Here are just a few:
1. How do you start with a story?
2. Do you create characters then write a story?
3. Do you do an outline of what you want?
4. Where do you get your ideas?
5. How do you decide what genre to write?
I have no idea where to begin. The only thing that has come to my mind is a title. I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas.
