An elevator pitch, elevator speech, or elevator statement is a short description of an idea, product, or company that explains the concept in a way such that any listener can understand it in a short period of time. Describe your novel as though it were an elevator pitch.
List down all the characters and locations that will or might appear in the story. Include some that seem unlikely, but might for example be a cool setting to add to a scene that needs some spice. You could also include some names or general descriptions for supporting/background characters that you might need in a hurry.
Write a few paragraphs about who your main character is before the novel starts. Not what they look like or what they do, but who are they on the inside? What do they believe? Want? Where are they in their life? (Why is the plot of this book you're about to write going to change them?)
Write a few paragraphs about the motivations of your side characters. Why do they want certain things? What will getting/achieving those things mean to them? What fears do they have? What do these characters add to the overall story?

At the end of each story-time he would make two promises; Tomorrow, a new story would be told. And that he would love and protect her until the sun burnt out, and the flood waters came, and the ground turned inside out, and until the final breath was gone from his lungs. It was something he remembered his grandfather saying whenever they would visit – and though he hated words for sentimentality-sake, he believed each word he promised to Everly. He would do everything he could do to keep his promises to her. He was sure of it.
