How does a writer find the right starting point.
|As I have joined this site only recently, I have had opportunities to read several short stories here. Most of them I have been entertained by, while a few, I just walked away wondering what I just read. It made me think of a question that I would like to pose to each and every member of Writing.com. When do you know, as a writer yourself, what is the right starting point of a good story. I know you want to capture the readers attention immediately, but even the best of story ideas, require a point that enthralls the reader to continue. I myself find I can come up with hundreds of ideas for stories, some that could be novels, but always find it hard to reach that good starting point. I am just curious what others think, or if they experience the same issues as myself.|
