P is for Premise
Starting reading 'How to Write Damn Good Fiction,' and I'm working on the premise for my novel. The book says that many beginning writers struggle with this, and get muddled up, making a statement about their story which isn't a premise. I wished I had the author there to help me tease the premise out of all the 'stuff' I have in my head for the novel. Spent quite a long time this evening working on the narrative, trying to make my hero into someone the reader will be able to empathise with.
