I've been writing since I was 12. Mostly short stories. Nothing I've wanted to publish. When I was 17, I decided I wanted to publish a book. Every time I start, I end up babbling about unrelated topics. Does any one got suggestions to keep on topic with a story and be able to write over 200 pages at the same time? My strategy was always starting from the beginning and letting it flow out. Maybe I have got to find a different strategy to writing a book. Any help?
