How to write your own story

By: Dorotea K.

Status: In Progress

Summary:

I'm sure you saw many manuals (stories) on How To Write, but I find most of them hard to understand. In all of them they just give you a couple of things you should NOT do and what TO do without proper explanation. In this stroy I will show you how (really how) to write your story or improve it.

      Hello.

      I read this 'how to', and I find it pretty interesting - especially the getting inspired part. I'm a beginning writer, and you know, I find my writings... Well, most of time I'm not fully satisfied of my stories, even though my friends find them "great" - but, uh, I mean they are my friends, and I don't know if they are really objective. Anyway, I keep on writing, and I find my inspiration mostly in music - when some lyrics speak to me.

      So, I'll keep on reading your 'how to' and try to follow your advices. And, by the way, it's nice to give us this little help!

      Thank you.

      Thank you for support. Sometimes it's difficult to decide if the story is good or great, especially if you have spend a lot of time working on it. There isn't a bad story or idea 'cause you cannot really finish a story, you just need to decide when to present your little rough gem and wait for the comments (Like "Fifty shades of Grey", in my opinion the book is only a draft, the author rushed into publishing it  and it obviously needs more polishing and better dialogs, but that's only my opinion).

      If you find your stories "bad" try to rewrite them until you are satisfied (Hemingway is a great example with his story "A farewell to Arms" in which he rewrote the ending 47 times) or find a beta reader.

      Beta Readers are great because they are also writers and will give you constructive critics and can help you in characterization, plot, spelling, grammar or whatever you need. You can find a beta reader on Fictionpress.net or Fanfiction.net, Wattpad, just ask a fellow writer you trust, etc.

      Anyway, thanks for commenting and stay tuned for the next chapter ;)
