The Basics: How to Write a Good Story
Authors Note(s) If you are wondering if you have a good story, or how you would even START making a story, stay here.
I am no professional but I know enough to teach you the basics:
Chapter One: The Plot
The first part of your story is your plot--NOT the title. Make sure your story is unique and not cliche. If you are doing a classic change it up a bit. Instead of the wolf eating little red have him eat cinderella!! :) Classics are boring and have been done a trillion times. Definition of a classic: a book everyone is assumed to have read and often thinks they have read themselves. Examples of classics and plots that have been done too many times:
-Boy meets girl (cliche)
-Rags to riches (classic)
-Vampire/Werewolf Stories (cliche)
-Teen Pregnancy Stories (cliche)
-Romeo and Juliet (classic)
-Best friends that fall in love (cliche)
-Red Riding Hood (classic)
TIP: If you can't come up with an original plot look at songs. There are plenty of story lines and it comes with a title!!
Inspiration---If you still can't come up with a plot give it some time. Go on with your life. You will find it somewhere.
