Six-pack Saturday

August 28, 2010 | Uncategorized

Six things I want in a story and try to include in the stories I write.

1) A special story world, unfolding as the adventure progresses

2) Surprises, there is comfort in the predictable tale, but a few unexpected twists keep me riveted

3) Characters I care about, at least one. Strangely, perfect story people are the quickest way to lose my attention

4) Trouble, complications, problems to solve–conflict is the story engine

5) An element of risk, this is easiest to insert when I’ve connected with one or more of the characters

6) Excellent writing, which usually means an invisible author voice

What makes a great story for you?
