12 days of writing: a premise

Your premise: Why did the protagonist fake those maps?

Who's the protagonist? What maps did they fake? Why? Where were the maps of? Who wanted them? Why were they needed? What happened because they were faked? Write freely, to find out.

To help you flesh out your premise, think about the elements of story: character • place • time • plot-layering • tension and stakes • symbols • theme • beginning • subplots • detail • ending

Tomorrow, we're writing... Characters.
