Excerpt: Basic ideas

The are many ways of coming up with the basic idea for your novel. You might start with a theme that you want to explore - inner city violence, global warming, excessive house prices, or whatever interests you. To that you need to add characters, a setting and a plot.

Which of these comes first is up to you. Perhaps you could think about the theme for a while. Decide what you want to say and how best to say it in story form. Alternatively you might get the place first, before the theme, characters or plot. I want to write a story about England, you might say. Or Cornwall, or Truro, or a particular street, or a certain house, or even a room within that house. Or perhaps the characters might come to you
first. You might have been playing around for a while with the idea of someone called Keith, a wrestler with a passion for fishing and art. Or perhaps it's the plot that comes first. How about a gambler who thinks that if you keep on losing then the best way to win all your money back is to carry on betting, doubling your stake each time. But as he keeps on losing he somehow has to come up with bigger and bigger stakes. Where will he get the money from? And what trouble will he get himself into if he loses that too?

Where will your novel idea come from? Theme? Setting? Character? Plot? Or perhaps something else - maybe an object, a feeling or emotion, a smell, or a snatch of overheard conversation.

If you can't think of anything, you could use some or all of the ideas above. You might, for example, come up with the story of an art-loving wrestler called Keith who has to sell his paintings to pay off his gambling debts as he tries to win enough money to buy a house in Cornwall.
