How to Write an Exciting StoryMaking an exciting story
Unlock the recorder inside: Make a story exciting
Most of my books are about questing, so most of my books contain some travel. However, a story playing in a college, a home or a backyard can also be a trip, perhaps in a person's mind. In one of my books, Rockin' Horse War, I write about a young woman looking for her rocker horse's sibling.
If I use Rockin' Horse War to show children that story can be seen as travel, I ask them to picture themselves climb a mound on a beautiful sunshine days, eat a picknick at the top and then climb back downstairs. That a good story? When a trip to a hillside or somewhere else is supposed to make a good story, it can't go well.
After the first few footsteps we encounter an obstruction (a bodily obstruction like a pit in the floor, an enemy like a beast that blocks the way, or even a issue that needs to be solved).
The story is exciting now, but if we don't tackle this first barrier, the trip has ended and the story is over. So, we find a way out of the barrier. Once we have cleared an obstruction, we find another obstruction around the next nook. We' re building a whole trip, create barriers and then work on solving them to keep the story going.
A nine-year-old boy in a league of fantasy can help you create a very long and exciting trip! On this trip you can vary the barriers. They don't want every obstruction the same: one in the floor, another in the floor, then another. It' more exciting when every barrier is different.
If you make every barrier more hazardous and harder than the previous one, the story becomes more and more exciting. Also, the solution should be different. By varying the hindrances and solving, you will amaze your reader and also the bad guys! It is possible to show young authors how to keep an ideas running, how to turn a momentum of inspirations into a full story by viewing the story as a trip and placing barriers in the way of the characters.
Sketch a card and place the obstructions on the card. Create two listings of barriers and related fixes. Place incidents on a time line to see if you can make the obstacle more exciting. I' m having my personalities mount hills, but there are many other travels you can write about:
