I started writing on the first day of a big storm. Seattle does not handle snow removal well, so I knew I would be confined to the house for several days. I had made a vow to myself that someday I was going to write a book about my parents - now I had no excuses.
Some of you may not be as lucky as I. I had time on my hands and nothing better to do. The point is; to get started writing, you just have to start writing! You can start with an outline, you can start by creating a table of contents, you can write a synopsis, or in my case, I just sat down to the computer and let the stories flow.
