Kris Noel Kris Noel's blog:

You can start a novel a number of ways, but creating a general outline of important scenes works best for me. I try to plan out my characters a lot more than the plot because the characters will build the plot for me, but I try to make sure I have the big details of the story planned out from beg...

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?














It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.  Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief,  That thou her maid art far more fair than she: Be not her maid, since she is envious;  Her vestal livery is but sick and green  And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
