    I am trying something new! Please help me?

    I woke up this morning and realized that , I have never tried to write fantasy or science fiction.  How should I go about this? What do I need to start? An Idea, a character? I want to know if I have what it takes to write this kind of story. But my mind is blank. Where do I find inspiration?

    Look at the Star Wars series, particularly the last three chapters, which were the first three books. Take away the science trappings and what do you have -- a fairy tale with castles, wizards (Yoda  and Friends) a maiden in distress and a hero.

    Build a story based on fairy tales, soap operas, love stories, etc and then update it to include the science fiction aspect.

    Or, make up a fairy tale, based on any scenario you can think up. Get a basic story line on paper, add characters, incidents, dialogue, etc. The revise, revise, rewrite and revise and you will have a story. Will it be a good story? I don't know. It will be as good as you can make it. Let me know how it is going.

    Good Luck
