Good afternoon all. I'm not sure whether this topic has already been addressed, but I couldn't find any reference to it here in the forums. Primarily, I'm seeking advice on how to actually start my story. Pathetic. Clichéd. I know. But I'm struggling nonetheless... I have an idea. There are many central characters that will combine in a Science Fiction setting in a myriad of different scenarios and/or situations. I have developed the concept for a central setting - a station that lends itself to the parliament of beings that populate wider space - but I just can't get it down on paper. I don't know whether to start from a particular character's perspective, or to introduce the station, the setting, and then dive into character introduction. Any advice on actually getting these ideas onto the page would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sam.
