The first part of a series in which I write a novel, from scratch, and talk you through my process. To kick things off, I consider the basics - what's this story about? Who's the protagonist?
Since I'm trying to write a Fantasy adventure, I do some brainstorming about what powers my protag might have, and what limitations or costs those powers might be constrained by.
I talk through Michael Moorcock's advice for writing a book in 3 days, which you can read here: http://www.ghostwoods.com/2010/05/how-to-write-a-book-in-three-days-1210/
