hi! im writing a story about a girl who sees visions of the future. so the basic idea is it usually happens in her dreams but as the conflict grows she starts to get them more often. I had the story beginning as her waking up from one of these visions. do you have any advice on a better way to start it? I was just reading your post about how to have a good beginning for a story and I’m really trying to improve my writing quality

Hi! That’s a good question, because starting with a dream/vision is generally frowned upon because of how often it is done. Maybe start immediately upon her waking up–without letting the reader see what the dream was. Talk about how scared… Read morehi! im writing a story about a girl who sees visions of the future. so the basic idea is it usually happens in her dreams but as the conflict grows she starts to get them more often.

I’m having a very difficult time beginning my story and I hate starting from the middle and writing the beginning later. How should I start it? I want to physically and mentally describe the four main characters and the place they are in; it’s going to be told in first person. Every time I try and write it it doesn’t sound good. So you have any tips or techniques for writer’s block in the VERY beginning?😰 thanks a ton in advance!

One author once said that the first pages are where the author lies… Read moreI’m having a very difficult time beginning my story and I hate starting from the middle and writing the beginning later.
