From my modest experience, I have learned some basic principles:
First, the fact of writing something remains an attempt that might succeed or fail. When you write a story and you don’t receive the feedback you expect, it doesn’t mean at all that your story isn’t good. Second, one should read more than write and develop some solid repertoire that will provide one’s mind with inspiration, ideas and creation.
To write a good story, the writer should:
– think of a strong idea that will stand at the core of the whole story.
– decide what kind of story to write.
– build a good sequence of events.
– While writing, always remember that you are addressing a reader’s mind, attract one’s attention, keep the one
thinking of the events, make the one grow more excited to gradually know what will happen during the next
events of the story.
– try to build a good story structure from the beginning to the end.
– Work on the characters of the story. Work on their psychological state, social circumstances, worries, ambitions …
– Forget your real identity and put yourself in the place of the characters. Dedicate your concentration to the story. This way you give a soul to your story and you keep it alive.
– Avoid using long sentences. Don’t repeat yourself. Work on the accuracy of your vocabulary.
Be strict with the grammatical side of the story.
– Be careful with your punctuation.
– If you enjoy writing your story, the reader will enjoy it.
– After many writing attempts, you develop your own style.
– Always be positive and open-minded towards the feedback you receive.
The Best Of Luck To Everyone.
