Hello there everyone! I’ve been mulling over in my mind whether or not I should give a larger piece of writing a shot. And my conclusion is, why not! I figure that I might as well try rather than say someday that I wish I had. The question I’d like to put out there is this – A lot of you are writers yourselves, so what are some tips that you would give about where to start? I’d like to attempt a work of non-fiction, probably historical in nature. So it makes sense to begin by researching, and researching heavily! What after that though? Does it make more sense to just start writing or to plan out the details before beginning the writing process? What is a good way to organize thoughts and research so the writing process is easier? A particular author that I enjoy reading and would like to emulate, at least in his writing style is Erik Larson. I know you all will have some great feedback so thank you in advance! I’ll be sure to keep the progress updated as well.
