There are so many different ways to write narrative about a topic. If you don’t write a chapter, you’ll probably never get to the end of it.
The end is the point, and this is true for narrative writing as well. I have a lot of trouble with some of the writing I see in some fiction works, especially the middle, because it feels as though the author is putting together a story in one continuous narrative that is just missing something. There are some stories I love that I see in a magazine, but then I see them in a book, and I think “Yeah, they’re really great stories.
The most common way I see narrative writing pieces that are missing something are when the author has to make a choice in what goes into their story. In most cases, I see these as stories that are supposed to be about a character who was supposed to be the main character, but then the writer decided that the character was too shallow or annoying or whatever to be the main character.
Again, this happens in narrative writing in general. A lot of writers will make their characters the hero or heroine of the story, and then some time will go by where they will come to the conclusion that maybe the character should be the hero or the heroine. A lot of times the writer will realize that the character isn’t the hero or heroine, but that their story is still supposed to be about their character.
One thing that is very important in our writing is that we don’t write a story to be about the character. We write a story to be about us. By making our characters the main character, we just take away all the richness and fun that comes with writing a story that is about them.
If you feel like you are getting too self-conscious about how bad your characters are, or are looking down on you for your characters, be sure to read the first two chapters of The New Yorker, and read all of the reviews. Especially if you are a writer, read them.
When you start a story, your character is always the one who starts the story. So it’s a matter of who starts the story first (which happens naturally). If you start a story about a character, you aren’t a character until the character has been published. If you start a story that is about a character, you are a character until a character has been published.
It takes a real talent to be a character writer. You have to take the time to really figure out what your character is like. And when you see your character, and the time you took to write your character, then you know exactly who the character is, and what they are thinking, feeling, and doing. That is an important ingredient in a great story.
If you start a story that takes place on a beach, you are a beach until you get to the beach. If you start a story about some kind of beach, you are a beach until you get to the beach. If you start a story about a beach, you are a beach until you get to an island. You can’t help but feel sorry for the beach until you get to them.
The beach is the only thing we can really feel sorry about. The island is where the story happens. It’s not a beach until you get to them. That’s where we start to feel sad.
