Creative writing is an art. The art can be in-built for some but also can be developed by following a certain process. This blog will be good to have a start but there is a long way to go. Something is better than nothing, right?
5. Read and Practice
Primarily the first thing is to develop the habit of reading. Read a lot, read anything. The best writers read and reread their favorite works which in turn helps in their writing. Next is to practice writing. The best way is to allot a notebook for your own writing. Take the notebook and make it a habit to write every day. Even if it feels boring on a certain day, try not to skip and just pen the random thoughts down of that particular day.
4. Collect stories from everyone
Just as how reading is important, interacting with different people and hearing their stories is also equally important. The creativity in us will develop automatically when exposed to stories of different kind from various backgrounds, culture, and ethnic and so on.
3. Write a catchy first paragraph
The best way to attract people to read the works is by attracting them towards the work. This can be easily done by catchy titles and first paragraphs. People will certainly want to read it fully on what actually the story wants to convey. This way the story can catch a lot of eyeballs and in this internet world, can become viral too.
2. Choose a point of view
This is very important for any type of writing. One should choose the narration of the story is from which perspective- the first person, second person or the third person and should stick to that throughout the story. This will help to maintain stability and the reader will find it easy.
Not just writing, for taking any important decisions brainstorming is the best way to decide upon something. If the story reaches a point and one wants to decide in what way he wants the story to move forward, he should try to list down all possible ways and ideas and select one among them which fits the story perfectly.
