Making a good story
I' ve already been enjoying and admiring Kurt Vonnegut's tales and fiction as a teen. In San Diego around 1984 or so I saw Vonnegut talking to a large number of (mostly) Chinese people. The people in the public who worked on their own books or narratives were asked for a hand performance.
Much of the crowd lifted their hand. He then asked how many of these authors had problems with their work. Vonnegut's eight hints on how to make a good comic. Allocate at least one person to the player to cheer for.
All characters should want something, even if it's just a drink of it. Each movement must do one of two things - revealing the nature or advancing the plot. When you open a door and sleep with the whole wide open sky, your history will become a kind of case of pneumonia. The reader should have such a full comprehension of what is going on, where and why, that they can end the narrative themselves, should roaches devour the last pages.
I' ll close with a few of my favourite quotations from Kurt Vonnegut:
So how do I make a good story?
You are invited to read your first section, your opening scenes, your first words. Did you make your invite? So is it enticing or appealing or irresistible? Do you think when a readership takes a look at your opening, he or she won't be able to write the tale? This is one goal of opening your storyline, a difficult to refuse invite to your fictitious realm.
They do not want to put a barrier in the way of the reader. Instead, you want to make the beginning of your history one of lightness and ineluctability. They want to make the history appealing and convincing. Look at your first sequence and first words your invite to the reader. Provide them with a good excuse to come into your life and mock them with good ones to be.
You give them a good excuse to begin your history. You can give them a good excuse to turn the pages. You give them a good excuse to run to the end. Encourage the reader into your storyline.
