joe-hillOver on Joe Hill’s Thrills, a reader and first-time short-story writer asked:

I started brainstorming ideas for the first short story i am going to write and I came up with the perfect idea, but i have no idea where to start. Have you ever dealt with this, if so is there any advice you can give me?
