6 Tips on How To Write A Good Story

Ever thought if your story is not good enough to outshine other bestselling books? Or maybe the real question is, is my story interesting enough to hype up the audience?

Storytelling is never an easy task. It involves creativity, propped up by your creative spirit, for it to stand out from the rest that has established its individual spark.

To get your story’s own spark and get familiar with how to write a good story, here are some tips for our young authors:

1. Phenomenal plot

Devise an extraordinary plot and maintain the story’s consistency and its progress. The growth should move to the intended tension your audience is looking forward to, which can be the distinctive play on the characters or the struggles they’re going through.

2. Characters

You don’t have to construct every young girl’s typical knight-and-shining-armor type of character. The challenge here should be creating characters that will hook your readers’ attention despite not having these admirable qualities. Create a character that will gain mass appeal when they read your book.

3. Setting

Mount your vivid imaginations up and take your readers to scenic places that they have never been. Or be creative enough to write the story in one setting and win it with an interesting plot.

4. Mood & style

Set the mood of the story that is distinctive, one that readers will recognize as solely your work. Fancy words are unnecessary, but a little wordplay wouldn’t hurt a little. Nevertheless, consider using phrases or vocabulary they can easily connect or relate with.

5. Theme

It’s best if your story has a theme. Every story has a lesson or a moral that your readers can reflect on. You don’t have to do the common type of preaching to your target audience, telling them what’s right or what’s not. Let them figure it out from the story.

6. Similarity

One way of establishing that intimate connection between you and your readers is the aspect of relatability. Considering the exclusivity of the plot and characters, pay attention to how writing such relatable events would build that sympathy or intimate connection between you and your readers. You would want to imperatively acknowledge your readers’ feelings by empathizing with them through the characters or events that they can relate with and let them know they’re not alone and that your book can be their companion. Always remember to TELL a story, not just sell.
