I have been blogging about writing but I didn’t talk about getting ideas and how to put them on paper. You don’t have to write ‘The great Literary novel of the century.’ You just need to make sure it is written to inform the reader of something newsworthy or to get them excited about some event. You can capture them with your opening chapters and titles etc. I know it can be hard trying to think of a catchy phrase or story line to snag the reader but imagine you are talking to someone you haven’t seen for a long time and explain your story to them as if you are telling the story for the very first time. Give it all the emotion and descriptions it needs to make it a grand story. Remember too, it is important to stay within the boundaries of your own knowledge base.
I think that’s why true stories do so well. They are pretty easy to write because it’s a true event and your role in writing it is only to relive the event and put it on paper. Embellish a bit if you want. All the major script writers do it so why not you? They will take a 5 minute story and make a 2 hour film from it. Make it exciting and have fun. I have 2 other books on the go here and I write them as I go. As I experience an event or incident, I jot it down and add it to the chapter where I know it fits. One of these books is going to shock and probably horrify a lot of folks but I figure they will appreciate my position after they read it and act on it. The other book is a little sad but has a happy ending……. I hope!
Oh, one more thing. Don’t sit for hours without getting up and doing some form of exercise to prevent DVT’s in your legs.
