I am a work professional and the writer by choice. I have been writing for a while now but basically poems, short stories etc. I have been writing due to internal urge. An idea, emotion and a feeling have been my guide and I have been converting them to poems and stories.
Now after 8 years of my first writing, I am preparing myself to write a play with characters, dialogue and scenes. But the problem is creating a plot. Or let's say, setting up myself for how to start? I have tried to start many times but couldn't go any further.
So, here I am seeking some suggestions for the preparations that are needed for an amateur writer and guidance on, "How to start?".
