These are what I start with when writing ANYTHING!
•The main idea
•Supplies (pencil, eraser, computer, brain)
•The plot--It's important to make it mysterious
•The plan--Like about how many chapters, if there's going to be the prologue and epilogue.
•(optional) The prologue and epilogue--It's good to make the prologue mysterious and the epilogue having led to a different story
•The chapter names--Make it vague and general
•(optional) A little blurb about you--It doesn't have to have a picture of you though
•And most importantly...the genre--It's important to know what genre your novel is going to be about so you can stick towards one thing because usually multiple genre stories get a little confusing or boring. The genres that children have a liking towards the most are: Fantasy, Realistic Fiction, Mystery, basically fiction.
Notes: Make your story suspenseful and make people want to keep reading it.
