Hello Everyone, I am very new here and I would first like to thank all of you for your time and helping me and I hope one day I can do the same for you . I have had this idea for a book in my head for years now and I have finally decided that, at whatever pace, I am going to start writing it little by little. My first task I wanted to overcome was that of creating characters. I have a solid idea of a few of them and couple are very slim but could develop. As of right now I have 10 characters that are all in their own ways major characters. Eventually there will be secondary characters that won't get as much back story or development but that is for a later time. Right now my biggest dilemma is if I want to create another character and make them the clear cut protagonist or if I want to use one of my existing characters. I wanted to know if there were some pros and cons that you could think of. Otherwise if anyone has some personal comments on how to go about creating a story I would really like to hear them. For instance if it has worked better for you to write the scene first and move into plot or vice verse or any other combination. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I do look forward to all of your responses. If you ever need more information just let me know or send me a message, still a little shy about posting my work just yet. Thank you all again!
