I have been toying with the idea of writing for a while now. Mostly I want to do it for fun, but there is the fantasy of getting published. For a long time I had no clue what I wanted to write about. I finally have a spark of inspiration but it is just a spark. I am a bit of a perfectionist and I have spent a lot of time the last few months reading about how to write a novel (with no idea what I wanted to write about.) Now I have an idea for a good beginning, a decent plot/conflict but I have no idea where I want it to go or how I would like it to be resolved. An idea but without the substance to make a full outline. Is it okay to just start? I'm just looking for general advice. Thanks!
