for those writers!

Post  katee752 on Sat Jul 14, 2012 7:29 pm

So, I decided that my other story idea was really, really terrible and I have a new one!
But, I have that problem, where its all amazing in my head and I just want to scream it out, but I cant put it on to paper. I have no idea how to make it longer than just the facts, and how to start off that first chapter.
I came to you because there are some really good writers on here and I need your help!
I wont be making this a Sims story, which is why its in off-topic. It'll probably be an e-book since they're the easiest to get published Razz

Hm.. Well, I had a dream that I was in a car accident with Zooey Deschanel and she made me famous. I kind of want to make a story like that, except elaborate a lot more on it and make the character work harder to get where she is, other than Zooey Deschanel saying "You're cute, lets make a movie together." (that actually happened in my dream, I woke up very happy) and stuff. I just don't get how to put my thoughts into words with all the describing words, without dragging it on and making it boring. I also have no idea how to start. Maybe I start with her on a talk show, telling her story as a old woman and the whole book is her story that she's telling. I still don't know how to start it :/

well, start off with the ideas that u want for example: you become famous from someone who is a celebrity. so, you are famous for being in some kind of accident with that celebrity. i think what you should do, is start the story by you and her telling a Talk show host your stories

So do you want the main character to be you or a made up character?
If it's a made up character then you can think about where she came from before she became famous. Was she rich, poor, or stable? How's her family situation? What are her talents? Has she realized them already, or will she later? Has she always wanted to be famous/make movies, or is it just something she decided to jump into since she had the opportunity?
But if the character is supposed to be you, then life before would be just as it was for you. Smile
And you say that there was a car accident, so maybe something happens there as well. Like were you hurt? Was she hurt? and so on Razz Like maybe she was doing a movie, then got seriously injured, and had to ask you to fill in.

As for the beginning, since your starting it off in the far future where she looks back (which is something I've always liked in stories), you may have to think a lot more about how the story will play out before you can begin. You have to figure out if everything turned out well when she was famous or not, which can be set off a little by the mood in the beginning.
