Ye Writing Advice: (in the style of sincerely-hope.weebly.com)
Before whipping out a great story, you need the basics. What will this story be about? Don't expect to have words exploding out of your mind right when you put pen to the paper. Know what main characters you will include and what the basic plot will be.
2. Need help or inspiration?
Books from well-known authors may be the key. Notice where authors indent, or where they punctuate things. If you have writer's block, have a little break.
3. Start writing!
What will you write your story with? A keyboard or the classic pen and paper? Know that a typed version is needed when publishing stories. However, writing on paper might help you bring out ideas better. When writing, you can listen to soft music, too. Try not to be distracted.
4. Get involved in your writing; have fun.
You'll be encouraged to write more when your having a little fun. Reenact a few parts of your story and pretend you're that character. You'll learn more about a character if you're pretending to be him or her. Reward yourself every few chapters with a snack or something. JUST HAVE FRIKKIN' FUN!
5. Balance everything out.
Have as much dialogue as there is story. Have as much long, detailed parts as there is straight-to-the-point parts. Too much of a thing is overwhelming.
6. Don't lose any ideas!
You'd be surprised how many good ideas come and go. It may seem kinda weird, but if you come across a fantastic idea that will probably be used, take note of it. Write it down or type it in your phone.
7. Editing can be a pain, but is worth your time.
Even if you may not be publishing every story you write, editing can help you improve your writing. Edit once you're done writing everything. Try rereading your story out loud.
8. Publishing stuff:
Think you're ready for the big time? Do your research, find some publishing companies, know the consequences. Be realistic and know that not everyone will love your story enough to publish it. Don't give up!!!
And that's my advice!
