Thoughts On A Story Not Yet Written

Who are the characters in this story? Why are they important, if at all? Who do they love, and how do they know? Who do they hate, and for long long will they do so? What do they know, and how much of it are they hiding? At what have they succeeded, and at what failed? And at what have they not even dared an attempt? What themes are to be explored in this story? Will they be explicit, or implied? On which themes will the story take sides, and on which remain noncomittal? What places will feature in this story, and who shall describe them?

Hey. Write the story. Then see what it tells you about all these questions.

Ah... but I think the questions ARE the story... is that plausible?

I've said that before, when trying not to write a story :)
