- Start with a clear structure: Having a clear structure in mind for your story will help you stay focused and organized as you write.
- Use simple language: Avoid using overly complex or flowery language, as it can make your story harder to follow.
- Cut unnecessary scenes or characters: If there are scenes or characters that don’t add to the story, consider cutting them to streamline the narrative.
- Use transitions: Transitions can help connect different parts of your story and make the narrative flow more smoothly.
- Show, don’t tell: Instead of telling the reader what’s happening, show them through dialogue, action, and descriptive details.
- Use active voice: Active voice makes sentences more direct and engaging, while passive voice can make them sound dull and convoluted.
- Edit ruthlessly: Once you’ve finished your story, go back and edit it to remove any redundant or unnecessary information.
- Read it out loud: Reading your story out loud can help you identify awkward sentences or inconsistencies in the narrative flow.
- Get feedback: Have others read your story and provide feedback, it will help you to identify areas that need improvement.
- Keep in mind the purpose of your story: Remembering the purpose of your story will help you to focus on what’s important and eliminate anything that doesn’t contribute to that purpose.
