How do you keep a story from getting lost?I often get lost when writing my stories...well, I guess it's not really lost. It's more like I can't keep the plot going fast enough because I'm trying to include too much details and it looks (too me at least) like a big mistake that I even tried to write. Any tips on that?
|XxIceCreamHeadachexX|| When you first begin a story, try to outline all your chapters, and detail on what will happen in each of them. Try to think of plots and topics before writing a story. |
|BlackAngelChick||Maybe you should write a story that you've been thinking about for a while. That way, you know what happens beginning and end, and all you have to do is fill in the details.|
|Dragon_of_Twilight|| Sometimes, I do some plotless comedy based stories.|
But for the more serious ones, all I do is outline all of the basics, and as I progress, add detail. As I write, I often read though a few parts to look for faults, or some bits which I can add interesting twists to.
