For me starting stories is making the background. I decide on the initial setting and then keep on expanding until I have the basics of the world, I then fill that world with people, countries, dragons (usually Tongue) etc. etc. I then make characters based off of these, both for historical purposes and for the 'story itself'.

The problem of this approach I have found is that I 'started' Weavers May 21st 2005, and I am still working on it over two years later Wink.
