5 Basic Steps for Writing Stories


This week's theme is "writing", so I'll be talking about Steps to Write Basic Stories.

1. Journal thoughts about characters
To develop well-thought characters, it's good to journal about their traits and how they look.  Going on baby name websites has been a huge help for me, so that I can see the meanings of some of my favorite names.

2. Look at writing inspiration on Pinterest
Create a writing board on Pinterest (it could even be a secret board) and pin fun inspiration for your writing.  You can pin outfits for you to describe in stories, houses, etc.

3. Thinking of people you know, and developing characters with some of their traits and such
I like thinking of people that I know and using some of their personality traits or their middle name, stuff like that.

4. Journal EVERYTHING!
Just journal everything!  Journal ideas, thoughts, words, personalities, and everything else.  You never know when you'll need that inspiration.

5. Create a writing notebook
Create a writing notebook, to keep everything organized.  You can make a name sheet to put in there and to just keep all of your inspirational juices organized, in one spot.

I hope you enjoyed this post! :)

Have a good week!
