Getting some meat on them bones

Posted at

Sometimes I get an idea for a book stuck in my head that makes me excited. I envision the story and it plays out in my head like a movie. Putting it on paper seems effortless because I just write what's repeating in my head. The only problem? The story comes out all bones, lacking most of the meat. In my excitement to write the events of my book, I skimped on the details. Reading through my initial chapters made me realize I need to set the scene better and add more descriptions. The book is definitely not finished if I can improve it with each revision.
