Do you have the gift of writing and do not know how to interpret that talent on paper? This is the problem of many gifted and unskilled beginner talents who do not know how to write. It is not an individual problem. It is almost a collective problem shared by every 7 out of 10 writers. Finally, when it is translated into paper, what is written is not worth losing. His self-confidence lurks away from trying.
However, it was my first short story to write it took three days to record the idea, but I certainly went through different stages before accepting work.
Step 1: the idea
To start any work you have to have an idea of what to write, you may get it through a small dream, a scene from a movie, a picture I saw, or from the experience I saw, many sources of inspiration vary from person to person. To the right, I may find one word inspiring me to write a poem in 10 minutes, while I stay for several days I can not find inspiration for another poem. Sometimes I find improvisation a source of momentum for the ideas of my writing, and to know the thing, now that I started writing this article, I was thinking about the difference between plot and node story work, and found myself writing on the foundations of writing a full novel.
Step 2: Start
You should not start at the beginning until the idea has crystallized in your head. And to crystallize the idea stages I did not mention in general because each writer will be different from the other.
To create an interesting beginning that draws the reader to read your work, you will follow three basic methods:
° Sequence events from the beginning
This means starting with the natural sequence of life from the cradle to the end, such as the birth of a child until death, and more than that method, such as waking the hero from sleep or the collision of the two heroes with a stampede in schools or universities indefinitely.
° Start from the end
Here, we begin to work in a reverse sequence; we start from the last scene and then the work becomes like the moments of return in memory to decipher this end. This is most of what we find in the novels of tragedy, where we find, for example, the fire of the city and then start the events back to find out the causes of combustion.
° Start from peak
The author begins working from the node that caused the change of events, and it is worth mentioning that this method afraid writer for the skill required in the work may raise the writer to the heavens and may be betrayed by the Earth, although this method of the most beautiful work can be valid for all classifications literary .
Step 3: Method of treatment and monologue
In this step, you will find yourself choosing how to deal with the work; will you become the narrator or the hero or more than one person, if you used the character of the narrator, cover all the events from your point of view you do not become the minds of the opinion of one idea they move like Marionite brides, The style of the novel is used in the voice of the hero. You will find that one person is at the center of the work, but is obliged to show all the characters from his point of view.
With the use of multiple narrators, you will find each of the main characters to show up and tell the event from her point of view. Usually, the number is between 2 and 6. The preferred not to increase. This method of distracting the reader may lead to failure at some point. The monologue determines how the events and their psychological effects will appear on the reader, how each character appears and confronts herself with her composition and how others face work, in the sense of how your own community deals and shows its feelings.
Step 4: Plot and knot
Here, you will start weaving the events that support your idea, the main idea, the idea of helping the Middle Eastern way, or a number of Hesiodic helper ideas. Where the writer begins to record the basis of work and how will support all work side of the emergence of the idea, and this is called the plot to arrive at a specific moment to the working node is the peak point begins to decipher the main work puzzle. It is worth mentioning that the ideas help to smooth disassembly in the course of work and some of them precede the decomposition of the main node to support the disclosure and some of them are left to the end or may not solve others, and this leaves room for the formation of the series of fiction from the binaries or trios.
Step 5: Characters
In this step, we choose the characters and draw them on paper with the intention of showing their formal features such as color, height, shape, color, and shape of the hair, eye color and facial features, characterization, personal work, and profession. It should be noted that this stage is supposed to be done with the idea, but I made it in a separate paragraph because there are auxiliary characters or secondary appear only when writing with sub-ideas to support the work.
Step 6: Finish
The endings are closed, which does not give the reader an opportunity to imagine something new. Open ends are the biggest challenge for the writer and the reader. ; The writer’s intelligence is what makes him write an open end that allows writing another part of the work, and at the same time be closed you can say that the work is finished, or leave it open completely means there is an integral part, and in this case prefer the fact that the part is already in writing so as not to tire the reader Waiting for release.
The penultimate step is most important: Language and eloquence
It is worth considering who writes in the vernacular to know that he is writing to a certain group who knows his language, while those who write in al-Fashah write to all the Arabic speakers.
Step 7: the review
All the above is to write the draft work, then leave the work drawer for a month and go to read as much as possible literary works that will increase your linguistic and analysis of the method of construction and then return to your work and read again as a reader, you will find yourself delete paragraphs and add others, and cancel the words and replace them Then leave the work again and return to him after reading other works, and so at least four times, then go to work for linguistic scrutiny.
The difference between story and novel
The events of the novel extend for at least three months. The events may remain for decades, such as the 100-year-old novel of isolation, which lasted for 100 years. The story is not more than a week events and may be down to several minutes. In the style of writing, the novel uses the method of elongation of events, the writer has freedom in terms of space and scenes to explain and write as he pleases.
In the story, the method of condensation is used, the number of words is limited, and the writer must have the ability and ability of language and style to tell a full story with as few words as possible in the short story. The amount of intensification maybe 50 words in the very short story or 8 words in the flash of stories.
With my best wishes for success with my first written work.
