Finding the Story, Part 2

I completed my class at the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto.  The goal was to figure out what my book was all about.  My original goal was to have an outline by year end, but now that I think I know what my novel is about, my goal has shifted to creating detailed sketches of my main  characters by year end.  Gerry Jones’ recommendation is to write a short statement (no more than 100 words) that begins:  “This is a story about [insert protagonist’s name]. . .  and to redo this periodically to keep on track.  Great advice.  Once I complete my sketches, I will rewrite my statement.  After that, I will begin envisioning scenes and writing my outline.
