Where to begin Writing a BookSo where do you start writing a book?
I' d like to begin to write
I' d like to begin writing - Where should I begin? Lately I've been thinking a lot about the purpose of the world. We all agreed that one day we'd be dead. I' m sure we all agreed that we don't want our lives to become insignificant when we part.
Now, I've thought about the purpose of living and I've come to the conclusion that the best way to help both the planets and humans is probably to do it. That'?s where typing comes in. I' ve thought about how I could help others and achieve my own gratification and liberation.
When I was a kid, I used to love to read and escape into fiction. It reminds me of the scene I made in my head, where I read and what it was like. I want to do this for others, but I don't know where to start!
What can I do to produce an imagery in the reader's head and catch his ticker?
So where should you start your storyline?
As a joke, today I thought I'd give you a little insight into my forthcoming novel entitled Structure Your Novel: Indispensable keys for creating an outstanding story. Available September 1, 2013, the volume x-rayed our idea of Historycraft to overcome the external esthetics down to the muscle and skeleton system that makes our work.
When we understand the mechanism of structures, we are able to take so much of the riddle of creating a powerful storyline from beginning to end. So where do you want the whole thing to begin? Writers begin their tales much too early, rather too later. There is a lot of press to ensure that our readership is well educated.
However, the trouble with all this information is that it is distracting from what the reader finds most interesting: the person who reacts to his present distress. So what's the first tragic thing? You have to ask yourself: "What is the first tragic incident in the film?
" Locating this happening will help you find the first dominos in your history. The first dominos can take place in some tales years before the actual tale and are therefore better narrated as part of the background tale. Which is your first big storyline?
Look at your first plot point, which will be the first big turning point for your character, and consequently often the Inciting or Keys events (which we will also talk about in the 6. chapter). Set-up before these sequences should not take up more than a fourth of the work.
More than that and you will know that you started your history too early and need to cut something. It doesn't have to start with Race-'em-chase-'em, especially since you have to take the initiative to implement and furnish your own people. Otherwise your readership will be gone. What captures the reader with insurmountable actions while still taking the liberty of establishing the person?
So how can you find exactly the right amount of information to avoid confusion and at the same the kind of fascinating issues that make the reader continue reading? If we get to the point, there are only three integrated elements that are necessary for a successfull opening: Characters, actions and set.
