You’ve moved into an older neighborhood and the first day after the move, a neighbor knocks on your door with a complaint about how you are parking your car. This is obviously a very difficult person. Write the dialogue about the complaint and then sketch out a plan for making friends with this neighbor.
The first thing you have to do is go around the house and look for places where they tried to get in.
Don’t forget to add us to your list of places to go for ideas, inspiration and encouragement! We have tons of useful stuff for you in our archives.
Good luck and happy writing!

You have to decide whether you want the illusion or the reality. You can’t have both.

How to Write
