How to start my story?

How to start my story? Topic: Ideas for writing a story on wattpad
June 16, 2019 / By Fern
Question: I'm 14 years old and I love writing but I've been really bored and non-inspired for the past few weeks. I want to write a story, but every time I try, it ends up sounding horrible. I don't continue the stories I've started and I have no motivation to do so (check sherloki1976 on Wattpad....). So I want to write a really good piece of text about anything really, and have no idea how to start it. There is no fixed genre or theme or character or setting, so any suggestions would be amazing!!! Thank you in advance if you do help..

Go on Google and type in "writing prompts". They are just very general ideas, in one sentence. You write about a paragraph about the one you choose. Do as many as you would like. :) I felt exactly the same way as you did, until I did lots of these. :) Another thing, just write. No matter how bad it sounds, write exactly what comes to mind for your book. Don't pay attention to spelling, grammar, or vocabulary. Just write. Also, don't read it until the chapter is done and go back through and edit it to perfection. This is what I do with my writing. Trying to make it perfect the first time around is going to get you nowhere. Hope this helps. :)

Ok, this happened to me a while back. I wanted to write a story, and just like you I couldn't think of anything. Everything I wrote was tossed away. So I just stopped. Now it's about 8 months later and I've had amazing ideas, they keep coming. I now have my entire story planned out, Anne the next in the series. So when an idea comes it comes good. You should never force an idea out. I'll say you should just wait a while, and just look around you, when your outside just notice the small things, I got my idea looking at a wire fence beside the road. I hope you find a good one, good luck!
