Tips for short stories: Write the beginning
Shorts are one of the most precious instruments in a writer's armoury. It offers the reader a business cards and an opportunity to practise their trade without getting stuck into a whole novel. To write a story means to place a lot of action and personality in a small area.
In the next three week we will consider how to do this, starting with the first act. Like any story, it's good to begin with one people. Thus empiricism pulls the reader into the picture. There is no way in a brief story to just post a prolog, as George R. R. Martin did in Game of Thrones.
You' ve got to get started with the main characters. Configure the symbol in your shortcut. The best way to do this is through actions - not necessarily blockbusters of actions, but the person who does something. Turn it into an exercise that shows you who the characters are and what they care about. When the story opens, the reader's reaction must also be shaped.
A part of it is to show them why they should take charge of the story and the characters. Unveil the character's more appealing qualities so that the reader takes good charge of him as a personality. Demonstrate why the situational awareness that history will be exploring is important. A story full of actions should begin with actions. One, which is hard on reflections and descriptions, should begin with reflecting characters and scenery settings.
In this way, the reader knows what they are getting into. Second, ask the question that will be solved at the end of the story. When you begin to ask big societal problems, but end up with the protagonists weeding out their sex lives, the reader will sense the imbalance. Create problems that you will solve in the end, even if it is not clear to you.
You don't have much timeto show the situation in a brief story. You' re gonna have to get this thing started real quick. Begin with something eye-catching in the opening - a daring picture, an event, a menace or an interesting issue. Move quickly from this to increasing activity.
Demonstrate how the gale cloud collects when issues compel the player to act. Finish the act by showing how the player begins to react. They have two ways of dealing with their situations. The reader can see that an alternative is more healthy and prolific. It is not the only way to get history in motion, but it shows a general point.
There is a issue that the reader can see the importance of and the characters take care of. Things are getting more and more bad as they try to do it. You' re the one who wrote your story. We' ll see how we can evolve it in the mid-act next year.
