Story Writing

Concept: Write a Story

Definition:

  • Story writing is an art that informs, entertains, and educates the readers. The author shares experiences, feelings, and introduces readers to various cultures and kinds of people, etc.
  • Taking the first step to write a story can be a challenge and fun for you. If you plan and write a story, you can put your thoughts in order and communicate your ideas in various ways.
  • Finding ideas to write a story is tricky. Story writing is a kind of narration where the author details a real-life event or creates fictional incidents to form a story.

Steps to Write a Story

Let us have a quick look at the steps to follow while writing a story that will make the process much easier.

  • Idea: Think of an idea. Read a book to get inspiration and ideas to write a story of your own. You can also write stories about real‑life experiences.
  • Setting: Will the story be set in a palace or a park, a different city, or outer space? Let your imagination run wild! This is a physical location and also the time when the incident or event or problem takes place. The where and the when of a story.
  • Character:Will their main character be an animal or a child or an adult? Decide the characters who are either people or animals. They perform the actions and speak the dialogue. They move a story’s plot forward.
  • Beginning: It refers to the introduction of a story. Introduce your characters with a setting. Let the reader know a hint of the problem. All stories have a beginning, middle, and end. Stretch on the original idea and set the first scene.
  • Middle or the Conflict or Problem: The character must face a challenge or a problem that forms the action of the story. Make it interesting with dialogues. You can also introduce a new character to spice up things!
  • A significant point: It can be a moment of discovery or a surprise that turns around the whole story. You can put in something that the reader would least expect to make the plot interesting.
  • Resolution: A good story must have a solution to the problem. Try to connect the conflict with the turning point to create a befitting resolution.
  • End: A proper ending is a right way to finish a story. What happened to the characters after the problem is resolved? Were they able to accomplish something, or did they learn a lesson?

Common Mistakes

  1. Brainstorm ideas before you begin. Divide your ideas into a beginning, middle, and end.
  2. Give an appropriate title depending on the story.
  3. There must be a logical flow. The events must be narrated in consecutive order of sequence.
  4. Use dialogue, punctuation and sensory details to make the story interesting.
  5. Create simple and compound sentences. Usually, stories are written in Past Tense.
