Writing Inspiration: Visualize your story

Before putting pen to paper, visualize your story. Imagine how it would read if in its most perfect form. For example, as writing my novel, “Windmill,” I visualized each line being read aloud by a specific radio personality; this guided how I threaded words together and fashioned the passages and scenes.
