Write your own creative idea, write your own text! You want to write a good one? Read these hints on how to write a story that draws readers' interest from start to finish: Knowing who you are working for and what your reader wants is the first stage; this can help you come up with new story inspiration.
Get to know your story. Sketch a map for each important object, such as the houses of your character, office or school. While you are typing, you are adding detail as it appears in the story. It is especially important when you are considering to write a serial; you don't want your reader to see the inconsistency from one to the other.
When you write for small kids, keep the attitude easy; restrict the number of places, for example at home, at work, on the play ground or with family. Excessive activity between places is confusing young people. However, older kids, teenagers and grown-ups need a more varied environment to make the story more interesting. Move your character from tranquil towns to busy towns and across the world.
Name your character; once they are called, these guys will come to you. The character identities should correspond to their personality and role in the story and not be too similar: e.g. Bill and Will, Sarah and Sally - otherwise you could distract your reader. Build lifelike figures - not too incredibly good or evil.
Provide them with virtue to heat up the reader's hearts and mistakes so that your audiences can relate to them. Allow your fantasy to work on your protagonists as you follow your daily routine. Visualise their bodily appearances, personality, mannerisms, idiosyncrasies, how they think and respond to a situation and how they interacted with each other until each and every one of them comes to life for you.
More creative ways to develop your own personality can be found in How to make engagingacters. What is the perspective from which you tell your story? It can be the point of view of the primary personality, two or more personalities or an all-knowing mind. Principal character: This is the point of view most preferred by authors and readership and the one best suited for writing small fiction and storytelling for youngsters.
Readers see through the protagonist's eye, identify with her and share her thoughts, emotions and inner battles. A protagonist can tell the story as the first or third party ("he"/"she"). As a rule, the latter is what is preferred by a child, as they have a tendency to mistake the "I" in history for themselves.
Three or more characters: Different points of view can give a story interest and profundity. The first is that the story is told alternately between the character and the character or the character and the bad guy. You can also place one or more subletters in the limelight for a moment and let them speak in a few sections (which should be separated from the remainder of the text by one or two spaces).
Clearly define the "voice" of each and every viewer point personality. Contradictory dictions and points of views increase the suspense and bring dramatic elements to the story. This is the all-knowing observer: here the story is told by a distanced storyteller who knows the whole picture. In contrast to the two existing attempts, which are affected by the prejudiced perception and emotion of the positional protagonists, this point of view expresses an objectively broad one.
But since it is so distant and im-personal, the viewer may not be able to relate to the character and may loose interest in the story. Get off to a good start: surprising, inspiring, intriguing or otherwise attracting your reader's interest and getting him or her to proceed with the story. A few efficient story opening.....
Dialog between the characters: Use this to awaken interest in the protagonists, to present the issue or to stage the story of the writer. Immerse yourself in the action: this is a rapid, thrilling beginning that immediately draws the readership into the story. Present the leading character: tell the protagonists and their problems to the editor, or present the protagonists in a position that discloses their personalities or problems.
If you start with a story, you have to quickly adapt to the surroundings, the times, the people and the events in the story. Provide only as much information as necessary so that the readership understands what is going on at each phase of the story. In the center you let your character evolve and let them thrive and learnt from their torments and failures, so that at the end of the story they become more wise, strong or better.
Here you also show the endearing quality or the vulnerability of your protagonist, which helps the reader to relate to her. No more conclusions that satisfy the reader. As soon as you have followed these Stepps and have finished your story, consider to publish your own work to get your work out to your readers! What are you doing?
