I just found interesting video talking about writing process. The video consists of 5 episodes. Actually, I watched all of them but the last one. Here what he said:
1. Where do ideas come? Books, environment.
2. How to make a real character? Give him/her talent, ambission, best frient, and worst enemy.
3. How to make a good plot? Put problem in it. The problem has to have correlation with character’s ambission. So, what makes a story a story is problem. Without it, we can’t build plot, can’t write story.
4. How to describe setting? Use eye, noise, skin, etc to describe it.
