Your Story’s Main Idea Plan

The important main single story idea is a sentence.  Following sentences show with a picture of supporting details, to understand the story idea. Sentences have a clear purpose and give evidence that is significant and meaningful to advance the story.  Develop enough interesting detail with action, so the story seems more original and entertaining.  Stunning facts that unfold to inform can be compelling and advance the story.  Engage readers with description, quickly giving a clear sense of understanding; when they know why it was written.  Characters have their own voice that complements the action in dialogue, moving the story forward.  Before you begin to write, an outline can be used for points to flow logically, with organization into coherent pieces.  Writing your ideas down can extend your thought beyond a first impression and for later evaluation. From what you have read, word influences can inspire, inform and evoke to improve your writing.

The Guilty a book by David Baldacci:  Will Robie is the government's most professional, disciplined, and lethal assassin. He infiltrates the most hostile countries in the world, defeats our enemies' advanced security measures, and eliminates threats before they ever reach our shores.
But now, his skills have left him. Sent overseas on a critical assignment, he fails, unable to pull the trigger. Absent his talents, Robie is a man without a mission, and without a purpose.
To recover what he has lost, Robie must confront what he has tried to forget for over twenty years: his own past. 
One of the best books ever, overall exciting, and interesting from the first chapter to an amazing end.

The Crossing a book by Michael Connelly:  Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. The murder rap against his client seems ironclad, but Mickey is sure it’s a setup. Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch takes the case. With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucia Soto, he turns the investigation inside the police department. But as Bosch gets closer to discovering the truth, he makes himself a target.
This is a thriller book skillfully written, with interwoven details to understand all levels of the story.
