Looks like you have found my profile, good for you.
Now you get to learn how awesome I am. :)
There is so much I could tell you about myself like how my favorite animal is a shark, that I'm allergic to broccoli or that I'm Christian. But I'll guess I'll just tell you about my stories and my love for a good plot.
I honestly really love stories. One time I read a whole 9 book series in four days. I didn't get anything done besides reading those days but those books were good. It's hard for me to put down a good book. I just want to read and read and read. It's a problem sometimes how quickly I zoom through books cause I run out of things to read pretty quickly. I'm also insanely picky about the books I read so that adds another problem in trying to find books.
Besides reading I like to come up with story ideas. No, I don't like writing stories I just like coming up with story ideas. It's very hard for me to write stories cause I've read so many books and I know a lot about what makes a good story. Every time I start to write a story my perfectionism comes out and I start setting crazy expectations for my story. So I get discouraged pretty quickly and I set the story aside and never pick it up again. It's a problem which I'm trying to work on.
With trying to overcome my perfectionism in writing I have found many great tips for writing. I honestly know a lot about stories. Do I know everything? Ha, no way. But I do know a lot. And I love to help others improve their stories as I struggle to write my own.
Stories and service are two things that I love. They fall into my top 5 of things I love. (First being God and second my family) Because of my great desire to find great books and my love of helping people I like to put them together and help others make their stories great.
With helping others improve their stories I have discovered four things that help make stories great.
The where- a vivid and believable setting for the story
The who- characters who make sense and have flaws
The what- a plot that moves not too slowly or too quickly
The why- a purpose behind the whole story and what you wish your readers to get out of it
With these four things done rightly, you can create a great story.
That's my wish to help others make their stories great and maybe come to write my own some day.
