Good techniques and ideas for a good story
« on: August 02, 2004, 12:02:03 pm »
Well, I must admit I am new to writing, I caught the writing bug not too long ago, and I am interested in writing. I remember the basic(research, outline, background, etc...) but any other ideas would be wonderful that anyone else can suggest.

Thanks  '<img'>

Good techniques and ideas for a good story

One of the most key ones is inspiration and reading a lot. You should read other peoples stories and read books and everything. Oh yeah, let me plug myself and give you this link to my essay, A Guide to Writing Fantasy. It covers an array of topics, such as characters, plots, world building, inspiration, grammar and stereotypes and cliches, and soon there will be a topic on writing anthropomorphic fantasy.

Good luck with your writing!
