Writing The Story ….Some Suggestions & Things to Remember When Writing…

It’s not only what happens when you write, but who, what, when, how and where. Pace your book when writing. Be sure you string the reader along. What do I mean by string the reader along? I mean make the reader interested so that the reader keeps reading.

Think of what happens next? What are you doing to move the story alone?

In some chapters you want to give out information and introduce the complication (plot). This is where you make it interesting to keep the reader reading. Know what to tell and what to leave off.

Check your outline against your story. Look at the beginning, middle and end of your story.

Remember the key elements of your story. Have you introduced your main characters such as the hero, or heroine? When describing them choose your words carefully. Think of it this way the amount of time you spend describing a character tells the reader how important they are.

Let your character’s voices speak.

Next up complication (plot) and the secondary characters. Who are they? What do they do?

Next do you have confrontations, suspense, physical attraction, and the realization of something unattainable? >p> What are these?

Things that keep you story moving. This is not to say you give the reader every small detail.

Now start writing!
