Seven ways to choose which story idea you should write next
And the most important choice an author will ever make is what story to write. It is sometimes a simple decision: the "real" story will look us in the face. You' re like me, you probably got enough thoughts for the remainder of your Iife.
It' damn hard to just select one if we really want to write them all. So, how do you vote? Having finished my Diesel Punk Work-In Congress at the beginning of the year, I'm now at this quiet place between the tales, and I'm doing my best to find out which of my thoughts is the right one to begin with the next.
I' d planned my next one as a contemporary timetravel thriller (think The Bourne Identity vs TheTime Travelers Wife), but I have another notion of a historic super hero (think Spider-Man vs Jane Austen) who is also screaming for my heed. Of course I am interested in both of them, but which one is the right one for me at this point in my Iife?
Whichever story we pick, we're gonna spend the next few years Choosing the false story, we could end up squandering our precious little hours and countless frustrations on the game. But, if we pick the right story, we will embark on an enthralling and rewarding trip that will help us thrive as a writer and hopefully create a novel that we can publish to all.
Below are the seven elements to consider when choosing what story you should write next. And if your story doesn't have a big basis, you shouldn't write it. However, a big assumption in itself, a big story doesn't make it. What does this assumption lead you to? Who are the people who will inhabit this story?
So what are they looking for? In what kind of underworld will they live? Let's say you have an image of a story about two refugees in Rio de Janeiro in the nineteenth centenary. They like the settings and interactions between the two personalities, but quite honestly, the tension or why they are on the run just doesn't interest you too much.
You have to make a lot of loving decisions before you get involved in a story. Consider the effects of your premises. When you think the latter is the case, it may not be a story you want to spend even a few month living with. It can be a great story in itself, but if it doesn't excite you right to your toes, you have to ask yourself if you have enough of it.
"That a story you should write? That a story you can't write? And not every apparently great story ideas comes with all the other things you need for a great work. Remember your figures. There is no great shortage of great personalities.
The most of my story starts with the interactions between two different personalities. Think of your own thoughts. Do you feel the importance of a larger story under the cover? So what's at stake? When you can't at least feel the opportunity for greater deepness, the concept may not have enough power to support itself.
You' ve found out your premises and your personalities. Do you know what kind of history you want? Don't just take a seat to write a story without realizing what you are trying to do. I knew exactly what I wanted when I began to write Storming: a funny blockbusters comedy.
Knowing the sound of the story helps me make it into a coherent whole from beginning to end. In the absence of this comprehension of your story, you will not be able to achieve the coherence and concentration you desire. Things I like to fix, even stories.
However, just because one story is the next in a row doesn't necessarily mean it's the right one to write at this point in the game. What story does it feel like? Atwood was wise to say...you know when you're not prepared; you may be mistaken when you're prepared, but you're seldom mistaken when you're not prepared.
But, taking these seven elements into account, we can at least remove some of the notions that are definitely not willing to be writ. For me, although I haven't made a last call yet, I definitely follow the idea that my historic story of superheroes might be right for me to spend the next few years of my Iife.
So how will you determine which story to write next?
