romance and fantasy story

by Faith
(Nairobi,Kenya)

Hello,


I love reading stories and all types of novels I would to write my own story for others to read as well since I find it fun also I would to write short stories for children to read and improve their skills. I don't know where to start since it's my first time and I don't have a mentor to help me. Kindly help me so that I can have my starting point.

Thank you in advance.

Answer: You're starting point is where you are now.

Just start writing whatever story comes to mind.

Thereafter, read a lot and write a lot. Set aside time each day or week to do both.

Write stories that move you emotionally, that you love to read even though you wrote them.

Use sites like this for pointers on how to improve or revise your writing.

Don't ever stop.

Best of luck.

What a wonderful thing it is to feel that spark of inspiration; that genesis from which springs forth the tellings of tales great and small, far-reaching and yet still near (to hearts and minds).

And what an equally beautiful thing it is to see that light go on in others' expressions as they are caught up in your story.

The best place to start, as Glen stated, is right now, where you are.

It is said that a person writes best what, in life, they know.

Some people are natural storytellers because there exists an oral culture and/or tradition by which histories are retold for future generations in the absence of the ability to write down said stories or histories in a book or compendium of collected works.

Oral storytelling as a plot device can open up so many doors that lead to so many different, varied outcomes.

Sometimes, for instance, history repeats itself and some major event that caused calamity or strife or had a lasting impact can apply to a set of current events in your story's "real world" that your Main Character has to deal with.

By now I am certainly babbling on and on, but yes, by all means, start writing and NEVER STOP!!!!

The worlds you can create are just begging to be made real.

hey, this is a wonderful website and at no cost. Take a look at where you can get more FREE information: Jenna Moreci (youtube), Ellen Brock (youtube), Playing at Writing (facebook), Grammar (chompchomp.com), theeditorsblog.net, and take a look at my channel for broad lessons (https://youtu.be/GWfDcxWeQYE). And I'd recommend subbing to these question people ask to broaden your horizons.
