Starting a story is such a cinch. I mean, all you have to do is juggle about four delicate plates in the air all at the same time. Plot, characterization, world building and language, all up in the air, any of the four ready to drag the fledgling story down into info dumping hell. Oh, and each character has to want something. And be interesting while still being afraid of something. And the problem the world is going to have has to be solvable in exactly 10, 15, 45 or a 100 thousand words.
No problem what-so-ever, eh?
