Tell us about your writing process.
It usually starts out with me creating a storyline with a flowchart. This helps me keep track of every character and every plot twist and diversion in the book. This helps me organize and effectively overcome the writer’s block. This method also helps me take a quick glance at the book’s plot if I wish to add minute details in the story. Once the flowchart is sorted out, I keep that as a reference and write the story.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I weave the story by putting myself in the character's shoes. Considering the traits and personalities I've given them, it helps me write the next part of the story.
