The Key to a Great Story – Write your story your way

Standard
Write the world the way you see it.

Write the world the way you see it.

It’s been a few weeks since I gave the bare bones of which characters you potentially might need to include in a story, and while I promised an article on main characters to appear quickly afterwards, I suddenly hit a bit of a dead end. (That and I’ve recently started a new job so my brain space has been occupied with learning new names etc.)

The main reason however I hit a bit of a dead end is because, while I’m writing a guide of how to write a story from the ground up, when it comes to writing I’m a firm believer in doing it your own way. When I first started to read writing advice on the internet, I got so confused and turned around about how I should be writing things that it took a while for me to realise that what I had been doing before had been the right way all along. The right way for me! So while I hope anyone who is reading this is doing so because they’d like to know a few basics, or because you’re interested in my perspective on the writing way, please don’t ever forget to write your story your way!

The posts on main characters will be coming soon, but I have to figure out more about what I want to say about them, because while I want to give you the basics, but don’t want to just tell you stuff that you can find just anywhere. I want to share my perspective, and dredging that out of my brain is a lot tougher than I’m imagined it would be.

So here’s one lesson for you, write your story your way, like I’m going to write this guide on writing based on how I think about constructing stories.

Lesson two; writing is not easy. You need patience, courage, and more than just an idea. I had an idea about writing a guide to writing a few weeks ago. As I’m sure we’ll learn together, it was a brilliant idea, just not an easy one to hammer out.

About kabrown4

A quaint life full of teacups searched for inspiration to fuel a writer dreaming of fantasy worlds that are full of friends found only in words. I have been writing for as long as I can remember and over the years I have developed many stories and many characters. This is my blog about the journeys I've been on over the years, and the road I'm still travelling as a writer.
