For as long as I can remember, I've thought about writing a book.
The time has come in my life that I have to stop 'wanting to' and actually 'do'. The ability to self publish through Kindle and other eBook vendors has now made this easier than ever.
My issue now, however, is coming up with a suitable idea / synopsis for my story. I don't want to make money out of this, just complete a goal I've had forever.
Does anyone have any tips about how to formulate an idea for a story?
When you have this idea in place, do you (writers) just 'go with the flow' and write, without too much planning, and see where the story takes you? Or do you find storyboarding is the only way to go?
