Typical elements of a good story.

1. Must have characters that you love AND hate. Of course some of these came change with the story, but not too many. Otherwise, why care what happens!

2. There MUST be unexpected plot reversals.That is why we follow the story!

3. Have a point to make, but not too many. Life is about lessons and the best, most memorable experiences teach us lessons.

4. Must be believable. This includes the characters, the events and the setting. In SciFi this means we have to work harder to set things up. And I never liked dumbing down characters to make the action flow. The key is to always begin with an element of truth, then twist it to fit your needs.

5. Use dialog and visuals to put the reader inside the action. The mind is a terrible thing to waste and nothing makes better use of the mind than STEM or good fiction reading. Given the the proper treatment, we can see better with our imagination than what can be captured on the big screen!

This is how you write 5-Star novels. Short cuts don't do.

Creating a good story is hard because you have to please your readers through your way of creating it. And I learned so much from your tips because I am fan of creating a story, but I am not sure if many people actually like it. Writing an unexpected plot twist is the hardest thing for me, but I am trying to make myself more creative. It is hard to think and even harder to compose paragraphs or words for a story. I hope you can help more people like me who loves writing a story.

Some stories are worth reading when the theme matches our preference. Only few story writers can do that. For me, in order to share a really good and interesting story, it must be realistic. If the story is something that you have experienced already, it will make you read it more. So as a writer, you have to maximize doing a realistic story. That means you are a good story writer, when you can get rid with the emotion of your readers.
