How to write an interesting story?
Is there any way like a software to make an interesting story?
or do you have any experience to write an interesting story?
Well, there's no fixed formula but you can try this out:
- Plan a plot with an out of the box / unexpected ending
- Make the characters and situations different i.e. a bit uncanny or "not normal" if you like
- Finally, write in a concise manner and keep the TONE and PACE brisk and thrilling
As I said, there's no fixed formula but give this a try.
i've written a lot of beginings, but...
Unlike most things, writing is not a skill nor talent, but both. Some people are born as writers, others aren't. The important thing about writing is that the more you do it, the better you get. Another way to improve your writing is to simply read and pick up on styles. When I first started writing, I had no idea about the names of paragraph-organizing-methods such as "general to specific", "cause and effect", or "emphatic order", but I could still use them. How? Because I saw great examples of them in the books I read on a day-to-day basis.
A strategy that I use a lot came from an idea that I saw somewhere (which I can't remember). The concept was referred to as "six word stories". Using six words, you would try to create something very dramatic or exciting. I've adapted it so that I come up with a very dramatic sentence, and work a story around it. For example, I'll use this sentence, " 'I love you,' he wailed in agony as he pulled the trigger". The two basic categories for this would be suicide or homicide. I'll pick homicide. Now, since this man is shooting someone he loves (I'll make it his girl friend), he needs a pretty dang good reason why. I'm going to make this a post-apocalyptic outbreak. So the MC's girlfriend has contracted a virus that will cause her to kill everyone else in the group. The only way to survive is for the MC to shoot her.
From that little bit, you can start to consider all of the basic events that lead up to this climax, and then flesh them out. Before you realize it, you've got a short story.
There are plenty of other ways to get ideas for short stories, but the "sentence pulping" is my favorite...so far. If I find any others that actually work better for me, I'll post them.
Honestly, what SigT said is absolutely true. It doesn't matter what you're doing in literary arts; if you start with the end in mind, it makes it a lot easier to finish any project. The concept applies to stories, murder mystery games, scripts, etc.
To give both age old wisdom as well as probably being unhelpful - I believe the classic piece of advice is to write something that interests you.
I don't know. It obviously varies for different people. For me, something is interesting if it's new, unexplored, a place the reader hasn't been before. As a result, I'm unsurprisingly into science fiction and fantasy.
