Information to write Novel

I often touch on the different aspects of fiction writing in my blog, Writer's Edge[http://www.writers-edge.info], but I don't think I would presume to tell anyone else how to write their book. We all develop our own methods, sometimes different ones for different novels.

For example, right now I am working on my third book. The story idea arrived whole in my mind (a rare occurence for me!), so I wrote up a quick outline: beginning, middle, end. Some writers call this a "framework" for a book. Then I expanded the outline and found I needed a cheatsheet on each character, a list of settings, a chronology of events, and a chart of relationships (it's a complex middle). I tried having all this on the computer in one file of MSWord documents, but I really needed a faster reference method that wouldn't take me out of the page itself. I printed out the charts and tables and posted them on a bulletin board near my desk. I couldn't possibly keep all this information straight in my mind before I write the book.

Having this novel pretty much completely outlined allows me to focus on the writing craft now. After several decades of writing, I know that this procedure works much better for me than just writing and seeing where it goes (nowhere, usually).

For you, I would suggest that you first get a better grasp of the language, if you're going to write in English professionally. Never pass by an opportunity to practice good writing and to demonstrate your skills.
