Great to hear! Let’s start by discussing your story concept. What’s the central idea or theme you want to explore?

I’m thinking of a historical romance set in the 18th century, but I’m struggling with character development.  I’m not sure where else to go; I want to turn this into a good book that I would like to write and share.

That sounds intriguing. We can definitely help with character creation and flesh out the plot. Tell me more about your main characters and their motivations.

Well, I like stories where the protagonist is a spirited young woman.  I can imagine mine being someone who dreams of adventure, and the love interest is a mysterious, dashing nobleman.

Perfect! Let’s work on developing their backgrounds and personalities. Do you have any specific traits or quirks in mind for them?

Yes, I’d like to give them unique qualities that make them stand out.  That’s really what I was hoping to get out of this discussion so I could get started!

We then take this info and start the process developing the book summary for your story!
