Grace Carlisle asked Cornelia Funke:

I have been wanting to write a fantasy novel for a very long time but I do not know how to begin. How did you begin to write Inkheart (honestly one of my most favorite books)? Did you plan your story first or dive right into the writing?

Cornelia Funke Grace, we all have to find the beginnings of our stories ourselves:) It's your story so it will only tell you how it wants to begin!
and yes, I do plan parts of my stories but then they always change while I am writing - and of course I follow their lead
