START WRITING FICTION: BUILDING A STORY
Welcome to the fourth installment of the Start Writing Fiction series. Now we know what fiction is, how to get into the habit of writing, and got a taste of how editing and revising is helpful, we will now learn how to build our world. Creating your story is fun and exciting. But there are times it can become frustrating. One thing you need to remember, DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Early on I mentioned to you about keeping a journal. A private place to write your story ideas and your observations. By looking at your journal, you will see story ideas come from anywhere. From observing people, news, and personal experiences. Inspiration can come from your friends, work, from other authors, television shows, song lyrics, and movies.
