How To Write A Story: Fin

After you edit the story publish it.
Let the world view what you have created. Some viewers will critic you writing and others will praise it. But before you listen to others form your own opinion. Your opinion is the most important one.

When you do listen to the comments, discern which ones are to help you with your next project from the comments that are negative. Take the comments that help and your thoughts and move on to the next project. Do not beat yourself up about what you could’ve done differently on this project. Move on.

As I come to a close, I would like to say that I hope that you have been inspired. I enjoy sharing my journey of self-expression. If you are a beginner in the world of writing, don’t give up and don’t compare yourself to others. You may feel like you have nothing to offer or other people are doing what you would like but better. Stop lying to yourself. You are an awesome, unique individual who has something to share. Continue to share regardless. Success or failure, You have something to share.

Let me know about the stories you plan to write!

How To Write a Story: Going Through The Fire of Editing

Editing is a test. I do not like someone else reading what I wrote and critic it. I am sensitive, but writing is helping me get over it. Editing is very necessary. It is the refining process for writing. The process keeps you from being embarrassed and helps your ideas become accessible to others. It’s good to know that someone understands what you wrote.
The resource I like to use is Grammarly. Grammarly forces you to take a second look at your writing and make it as pristine as possible. I have not used the paid version of Grammarly yet, but, someday I would like to.

Grammarly isn’t the only resource there are freelancers or you can even ask your friends. The main goal is to make your idea clear.

If you would like to help me get Grammarly, consider donating at Patreon!

How To Write a Story: The Outline to a New World

The outline is the key to a successful writing process. It keeps you organized and helps you stay on track. Regardless of what type of writing you are doing, it can be an essay, blog post or a presentation you will need an essay. With this post, I am going to focus on writing an outline for your story.

There are two approaches to writing an outline:

Focusing on the entire story from start to finish

Before you begin writing the outline have a plot and go from there. Ask yourself how did the characters get to this point and how will the characters reach a solution. The plot will help you figure out how to begin your story. The characters will help you end the story.

Another thing I would like to say is to have your chapters, acts and scenes organized. Put the details of what is going on in each scene or chapter underneath the titles of the scene/ chapter. These titles will keep the story organized.

Focus on the beginning
Did you know that Hayao Miyazaki didn’t have a finished script while creating Spirited Away?  If you refer back to any of the posts about Myra Breckenridge, I have explicitly stated that it is bad to not have a script but this is an exception to this rule. When using this approach you will be working scene by scene and not from start to finish. Whatever you chose to be the focus will start the story. At the end of the first act, the conflict or something leading up to the conflict should be presented. While using this strategy, the story should progress naturally. Remember the beginning is the attention grabber.

How To Write a Story: Introduction

There are a lot of stories, and a lot of mediocrity, but there is a story that hasn’t been told. You have an idea for the perfect story, but you don’t know how to share it with the world. I was in the same position, but through my years of writing, I have learned some valuable lessons that I would like to share.

I’ve written many stories and explored many different mediums to express myself. These mediums include: storyboarding, book writing and now screenwriting. With this blog series will be a step by step guide on how to write a story. Most of the information that I will be presenting comes from experience. These pointers have helped me, now let me help you. You have the ideas, and I have the plan to make those ideas come to life.

The first step to writing a story is knowing what you want to write about. Think of something that you would like to see in a book or movie. These ideas can include building a world, character or scenario that you want to explore. The idea is the foundation for your story. The idea is the focus of your story and it will help you stay organized.

Advice for Black Female Creatives

giphy.gif

If you are anything like me, you have had a hard time getting through life with being black, female and creative.  It’s hard. Many people will find you weird and you won’t have much support from your family. Your dreams and goals will not be respected plus it’s hard finding someone to click with. You will seek affirmation and people who understand you but it’s hard getting what you need.

Even though having people behind you is good, but no one will understand your vision like you. You are the one who will carry out this vision. In order to do this, stop caring about what is cool and what everyone else is doing. Be willing to be human even though Black Women are prideful in hiding their emotions. Build up the confidence to stand behind the vision and yourself.

Give birth to your universe. Don’t think you are too small or too big and don’t let your race or gender tell you otherwise.

I thought I would share this with you

I really love Childish Gambino’s This Is AMERICA music video.  I just watched it today and I initially thought that it was about the complexities black men face but in this analysis video there was a little more light shed.  This video that I am about to share with you actually ties in with tonight’s post on black creatives, so I am thoroughly excited to share this with you. Comment down below on what you think about this analysis and if you watched the music video too.
