5 steps to make short stories for beginners
1. Write the beginning of a story at a time
Before discussing further, I will share my experience and explain the type of story.
There are two types of stories,
Stories with art form, equipped with character, plot, description, and style.
Stories with spontaneity or spontaneous events that happen to you and the people around you.
I suggest that your first step in writing a short story is to write a story as it happens to you, your friend or about your ex-boyfriend as the material of your story idea, to be light and flowing just like that.
Do not be too much of a consideration, about other story ideas that make it difficult for your first step in writing.
And remember, when you start writing the basic story, make sure to write in one time only.
If you postpone it again, it is likely to make the story idea that was already flowing will return again and deadlocked.
Write on like a running water, do not worry about anything else. Here’s what counts as your first step in writing a story.
2. Determining the Protagonist
After you’ve written basic stories, try to re-read what you’ve written. Do not always care about your mistakes in the writing.
You feel proud of your work, and may even feel embarrassed by the basic writing that you have written, ignore it all!
Now focus first and notice from your writing, who roughly actor protagonist in your writing is. Search and try to find the protagonist.
Now you start thinking about the protagonist in your writing. It’s both interesting and complicated.
You could be a protagonist, if the story you write about the incident that happened to you. Or maybe your friend and whoever it is.
The protagonist in your basic writing is not necessarily a narrator, or he is always a “good person” in the story. Conversely, the protagonist is the one who can make decisions that encourage the story to be exciting.
Usually, to know the protagonist is to find one character that gives a lot of meaning to the story.
One more thing, when you have found the protagonist, then you will be more flexible and have many more ideas to improve your basic writing earlier.
3. Write First Paragraphs of Interest
In preparing the writing for a short story means you must be prepared with an initial step that may be stressful.
I mean like this,
We as writers must be able to provide one thing that attracts the reader at the beginning of writing. And that’s important!
The first paragraph has great power to attract readers. And the next paragraph is the twists and turns of the storyline of a short story.
Short stories always preserve characters and scenes, usually just focusing on a single point of conflict, and suddenly there are unexpected things that can not even be guessed by the reader though.
Making a narrative sentence in the first paragraph should capture the reader’s attention with unusual, unexpected and a real-life conflict.
Remember, if you want a hypnotized reader with what you write, begin by writing the perfect first line.
There are 3 Tips in writing the first paragraph,
- Just like opening a movie, make it as if we were on the scene.
- Make things that can shock the reader.
- Trying to be able to tell the whole story in the first paragraph.
4. Remembering Some Genesis
Each story consists of scenes or events that are taking place at a certain place and time.
Your task at this step is to remember some of the events that occurred in your life or anyone in the story about your basic essay.
The benefit is, to make it easier for you to write and improve all the basic writing that you have made before.
If necessary, make a little sideline for your event.
There are 2 benefits why you need to remember some of the events in the story,
Make it easy to build structures in writing your short story.
Shows which parts are more needed in writing your short story.
You do not need to digest events properly, but remembering memories of events will make it easier for you to write short stories and describe them.
5. Review your Post, and Thoroughly
Now is the time to review all of your writing carefully, as this is the step that you go through with your best results.
Try to think again, what should you do with the writing. All right, good idea, ideally good right now.
Mark if there are words or phrases that are less fit or less perfect in your short story.
Why not just in the first step can this article?
Questions like these often come to anyone who has written a short story or article, and this also includes me.
Simply, I’ll explain it for you.
If you did that earlier, it would only dispel any sentence ideas that were in your process, and would break the brilliant ideas of some of the events of your story.
So, in the first step you just need to focus on your writings that flow as is. Not thinking about anything else That’s it
I always do this in writing my short stories. And these steps are also always facilitate me in writing stories.
