Months!

Hello readers! I am so very sorry that I haven’t posted in so many months! If I have counted correctly, it’s been seven months since I posted last! That is much too long. I seem to be avoiding my blog. I don’t know why. From now on, I will try to post more often. I mean it this time, too! πŸ™‚

How To Write A Story

Here is a basic template, if you will, for how to write any type of story. Please contact me if you have any suggestions for what I should write about or just an idea for a blog post. πŸ™‚

How To Write A Story

Setting The Stage

Type of story: What kind of story are you going to write? Examples: Realistic fiction, sci-fi, historical fiction, non-fiction. What elements do [insert type of story here] stories always have?

Setting: You must have a setting. Where does the story take place? When? What is it like there?

Force of evil: There doesn’t always have to be a bad guy, but it always makes the story better.

Characters: A story is nothing without characters. Before you start writing, you should have at least one character developed. How old are they? What do they look like? Where do they live? Try choosing a name and writing up a few things about that name/person.

Plot:Β You need to have a plot to write a story. What is going to happen? Why? How?

Dialogue: Some stories do not have dialogue, and that is fine, but it makes the story more interesting and relatable if you add dialogue.

Elements: You should probably add some (suspense, action, adventure, romance, drama, etc.). These are elements of a good story.

Conflict: If there is no conflict, then the story is boring and uneventful. You need to have a problem, then that problem is solved.

Storyline Format:Β 

  1. Exposition (intro)
  2. Rising action of conflict
  3. Climax
  4. Falling action
  5. Resolution

Tips

  • Β Start the story with something that gets the reader’s attention so they will want to keep reading to find out what will happen next.
  • Create a protagonist (someone who the reader will come to love, understand, and care for) and an antagonist (someone who is all about being negative, evil, or sad). This will make the story more interesting.

All of this information was gathered from various sites, and my own brain… so I don’t know what to put for sources… πŸ˜›

I’m Trying…

Hey peeps! I am sorry that I haven’t been posting a lot! I just think that if there aren’t very many people to read my blog, then what’s the point? If I had lots of readers, that would inspire me to post more than I do. So if you were wondering why I don’t post a lot, then there’s your reason. If you want me to post more, please tell me why in a comment and please please please tell your friends about me!!! I would really appreciate it! πŸ™‚

Thanks!
