Whats happening? Starting a story, writing tips #1

Hi, Author here, today marks the beginning of a new series! WOOOOO!!!!! this series is going to be about how to write a lasting story.

starting a story is one of the hardest things to do when you write. you have to plan out a story line, characters, character development, places to live, new environments, and much much more.
when you start a story you want to remember two key things:

  • is anyone going to read this?
  • is this going to be fun to write?
those are two questions and at least one of them should always be yes. you have to have fun when writing something, otherwise you'll never finish it and it will seem like a chore. if you have fun when you are writing, it makes the story better for your audience.
and who knows if anyone will read it, that's always the big mystery, will this be something at least one other person will want to read? i hope the answer is yes, but you can always write short stories just for fun!

If you want someone to read your story, it has to be relevant. readers want to be able to relate to the characters, whether that character is strong but kind, or shy and timid, people want to somehow see themselves doing what the characters do, but more on that in another post.
there will be more coming soon, and please tell me your opinions!

Tell me, what kinds of stories have you written and how difficult was it to start? let me know in the comments!


  1. I think starting is the easy part ... finishing is really hard, though!
