Creating a story is a complex endeavor. Developing and merging all the story elements can be a confusing process. Another issue that complicates life is figuring out where to start the development: should the writer start with the characters? The plot? Something else?
Surveys indicate this concern is a major problem with new and inexperienced writers. My new book, Putting It All Together, addresses this concern by describing a process to create a new story from initial idea to finished draft.

For vacations, Hank and Pat usually visit distant parts of the galaxy. Occasionally, they also time-travel.
Besides writing novels, Hank lectures on fiction writing, publishing and book marketing. He is most proud of his talk showing grammar school kids how to create a short story. He used these lectures to create an advanced ebook with embedded videos to coach the students on how to create characters, plots and settings. The target audience is 4th to 7th graders. The book’s title is Fiction Writing Workshop for Kids.
