Here’s a fun way to start your novel — collaging.  I explain the process in this post:

Free write elements for your collage
Free writing is simple to do – I like to think of it as free form brainstorming.

Here’s how to free write. Set a timer for five minutes, and start writing. It doesn’t matter much what you write. The results of a particular free writing session aren’t important.

Collaging is a wonderful way to start your book. You’ll find that it also helps to keep you inspired, and on track. My students love this process; I hope you do, too.
