What If?

Thank you to Seattle Wrote  for a great interview. Uncut, unedited and appreciated.

Plenty can be learned from when writing from the “what if” premise, as explained in the article below. Thank you to Mike Sack and NYT Bestselling Author, John Saul, for introducing the notion, and encouraging new writers to hone and employ the method. It is of great help to me each time I craft a new idea for a novel; the “nut” of the plot, so to speak. It’s often too easy to stray from the central mission of a project, especially if you do not have the luxury of writing every day. I print out my “what if” out and keep it tacked to the wall next to my computer to remind me to stick to the meat!

Try it.
