Write! Write! Write! I can’t stress that enough. It doesn’t matter if it’s a poem, part of a story, or a character bio. Get those ideas down on paper in whatever form is easy and most comfortable. I have pieces of notebook paper with words underlined, doodles drawn, and rhymes scrawled. The only way you’ll know you’ve got a story to tell is to write it. I think it’s important to keep in mind the audience for whom you’re writing, but I also wholeheartedly believe that if you don’t like your own story, then no one else will. So make sure that whatever you decide to write, whatever story you choose to tell, make it one that you can pour your heart into and feel fulfilled.
