How to Start a Story
The success of everything you do in life, including writing a book that can sell, requires you to be a person of great determination, very sacrificial and also willing to invest a lot in the venture. Every author understands that for the book to sell, you have to be very great at expressing yourself and that means investing in yourself fully that is in skill, in thinking and exploring. This is because writing a book requires a person with a broad mind and that is why it is said a good writer is a good reader because you have to read more to write a selling story. Writing a complete book requires you to know every part of the book such as the conclusion, the body, but most importantly the introduction of the body plays a great role in the selling of your book. It is always the first place where most of the people that love reading will go to because it will either motivate them to go ahead reading the book or just stop from the beginning. Therefore, your beginning story should always be a very important point of focus as you write a novel, an article or a book. The following are some of the basics of starting a story.
Importantly, it is important to understand that there are different styles of starting a story. Every author will adopt a different technique that suits the story in their book and that is very important to understand to stop rushing into content that will not benefit your book. The first question you have to answer when you’re beginning the story is who is your central focus also called identifying a protagonist that is a conflicting character of the book. Basically, what this means is that you have to find your storyline or the character whose fate features in the rest of the book. In most of the cases, the character has to be a good or a hero, but also it can be an evil character that you are displaying throughout the book. What this means is that when a reader goes through the introduction story, they should be able to sympathize or identify a character they care about in the rest of the book, from the beginning of the book. Importantly, it is important to begin a story with crucial memories that are very core to the story you are writing. Be a writer that can cast a scene or a shadow of your book creating a dilemma or powerful emotions for your readers from the beginning.
