So, I’m currently working on some stories and I started thinking about what the readers like in the stories they read. And I know this has a lot to do with what genre the story is and peoples opinions and stuff, but let me know what you prefer.
Some things to discuss:
You’re searching for a story to read.
Do you look for a story in a specific style (ink, classic, LL)?
Or do you look for a great story no matter what style it is?
So, you’ve decided to read a story you have high hopes for. You make yourself comfortable and start playing the story.
How do you prefer the first scene and first episode to be?
Do you want the first scene to jump right in to action, or do you prefer a slower start?
How do you like the main character being presented to you?
And how about other important characters?
Do you like long, descriptive narrators?
What is your deal breaker? Why do you continue or stop reading a story?
And I know for many it’s the grammar and spelling (and I totally agree on that one btw) but I would like to hear something else.
