Get Writing: The Story Basics You Need To Know

time-to-writeThere may be many aspects of storytelling that spike your interest but none of those can be communicated to another without applying some simple and important techniques to your writing. Before you can develop your story there must be a clear understanding of your idea which can be developed through the creation of an outline. An outline requires specific ideas for the storyline so ensure that you have written down all of the aspects that you would like to include before you start writing the outline.

The Core Aspects

The introduction of a story usually provides a description of some of the characters that you will be included as well as where you will have the story taking place. These descriptions are an important part of creating an environment for your reader and initiating the first impression of your authorship. There should be a point established in which the rising action will directly follow and precisely direct the events of your story. The rising action that comes after this point should be a large chunk of the storytelling in your writing. The introduction, starting point, and rising action should all provide an all-encompassing idea of characters and environment.

The climax is the largest and most important event within your story and provides a large turn in the previously established characters and the environment. The falling action is when the story begins to end and there is a resolution to many of the events that occur within the climax of the story. When you establish a clear understanding for your reader, the story will take on a life of its own. It is important to develop these aspects within the outline to ensure that all of your ideas are included at the proper points for the intended level of drama and intrigue. This is a tool used by all writers in order to sell their work as well as develop ideas and work with others professionally. This is a skill that can only be beneficial to the writer.
