Well it may not be a masterpiece...

but I finally did it. It has been awhile since I wrote anything straight through, much less in the same day as the original hand draft and I followed up with typing it up....which allowed for my brain to get more creative with my writing once I saw it on screen. I wrote my first full chapter of the ficiton novel I have just been yearning to write for, Oh I don't know, the last ten years of my life. Like I said I know it is not a masterpiece, but it is a good solid foundation for what will come I am sure. And it will definitely be background info for my main characters. The only thing is I am trying to come up with some more ideas....and this is where you can help me out. By some simple suggestions. Now the overall tone of the novel is not one of a depressive state, but it does have a mother who dies at an early age leaving two girls behind. Now this is where I would like some suggestions....should the mother die tragically, or naturally? Should the girls witness such a death themselves or only hear about it from others? I know it sounds depressing, but it is a part of the story that is important. And who knows maybe these suggestions might help spark others out there. So in a fictional world how did the mother die? Don't be specific...just weigh the opitions I mentioned above. Thanks guys.

I think you should just go with the flow and explore different plots and which plot is the easier to follow on from. Happy writing
