How to Write a Captivating StoryMaking a captivating story
Weaving a story that immediately captures your audiences
is because I didn't begin the story like most folks do. The majority of humans glide into the same articles in a logical way. But most authors ignore the might of a story to immediately cast a spell over their audiences. They not only ignore history, but also the centre of history.
That' s where the actual tragedy is - the part that really fascinates the readers. Which part of the story do you want to use? In fact, the response is quite commonplace - even counter-intuitive. In order to get to the tragedy, you don't have to choose anything in the story that is particularly interesting.
I just need you to make it thrilling for me, the read. Was buying footwear the most important point in my little story? There are at least three or four thrilling points in every good story, each of which can come to the fore.
Yes, every point is thrilling. All that really counts is how to add a stirring element to the story. Masterful story tellers know that this is the truth. You know that even an everyday story can be awakened to reality as it is told. Hans Rosling recounts a banal story of a laundry washer in a TED.com film.
Now Hans has many possibilities to tell this story, but he talks about the "button-controlled miracle" of the maschine. When I was only four years old I saw my mom loading a washer for the first case in her first year.
For years my mum and dad had saved up enough to buy this bike. On the first of the days it was supposed to be used, even Grandma was asked to see the maschine. So my mom opened the doors gently and put the clothes in the washing maschine.
Sitting in front of the press, she looked at the whole wash-programme. For my grandma, the washer was a wonder. What's the interesting part of this story? So it could have been the soundtrack and how they were fascinated by the soundtrack. But as you can see, he could have picked anything as long as he used emotion to bring the story home.
One feels the agitation, the reverence that Hans is telling this rather banal story. It is these feelings that keep the tragedy going and keep the heart of his public beating. Use any story or part of a story to get the story started. You' ll often find this tragedy somewhere in the centre of your story.
Telling a story is one of the best ways to get the reader's heed. However, the best way to advance this story is to select something - everything - from the center of the story and use it to begin your story. As you work your way through your story in the story, you'll find at least two or three places where you can reap great emotions or uncommon dramas.
If you have found this feeling and this tragedy, it is only a question of placement at the beginning to attract your readers.
