How to Start Writing by Michelle Spray

New writers always ask me how they can get started writing a book. Here’s my advice to jump-start the process!

Don’t write in order. This helps. Write each scene on a new document so when you think about a certain incident or scene, just write about that. Start with voice text in your notes app and just babble.. while you’re driving, while you’re doing the dishes.. Don’t worry about grammar, structure or chronological order. For now. Just brainstorm thoughts on the page! Hope this helps. I also write scenes based on my mood. For example I won’t try to write a happy scene when I’m pissed off that day. 🧡
