I was afraid to write and even more afraid that someone would see it. Obviously, I didn't have any ideas that someone would want to read about. Until I got an idea that wouldn't let me go. I had to write it down. The second case came about while I was writing. I had too many ideas and didn't know which one to take first. It helped when I figured out how to structure my ideas so I had a framework to use. I could sort my ideas by the age of my protagonist. Writing came easier after that.(less)
