How To Come Up With Novel Ideas That Will Make Money
If you are trying to get a novel published, or simply write a novel for your own sake, you have to start with the basic idea, or premise. The central idea of a novel is its core.

How To Come Up With A Story Premise
Once you have the basic idea of a story you need to turn it into a premise. And here is one common mistake. An idea is not a premise. A premise is a very specific thing.
