Steps to developing your story ideas don’t have to be difficult. Here are some ways to do this.
Create a Character
Describe his/her physical attributes, personality, their likes and dislikes. You can include their race and ethnicity. What is their job? What other details about them are there?
Identify Your Character’s Desire
What is it specifically that drives your character into action?
Choose a Resistance
What or who will stand in your character’s way?
Decide on how your character will grow throughout the story.
What is going on in and around your character’s world?
Putting it all together
When you first start your story idea, the above will work as a guideline. Jot down some ideas in a journal or notebook for each of the above areas to get yourself started. Then go back and develop each area in more detail. Continue this process until you have enough details written in each of the above areas to bein your story. However, when you begin writing your story will be up to you. Everybody is different. You may not need many details to start, but others will.
