Hi @madison_artdesign
For my advice for a Beginner Author you should used

1.Exposition: Characters and setting
2.Conflict: the problem
3.Rising Action: Any details that happen before the climax
4.Climax: major change ( The story is never the same)
5.Falling action: Any details that happen after the climax
6.Resolution: How the story ends

Here is a link for starter Author

but if your writing any Genres i would subject, you can put a twist in action or mystery . But if you are using mystery then you have to used clue , timer choice or anything that you have plan for your mystery story and if it is a action then put something that match action but it has to be your idea only that you have made up with your own creative .

Here is link for Mystery to plan out story @madison_artdesign

Hey Emma.Jane.episode,

@Kande10 has definitely some useful advices. But everyone plans in their own way. → I take notes, before I start a story: I write down the titles of every episode and I write out the characters (who are they, the age.) And after that I write down, who I need to credit for backgrounds or overlays.

For the rest:

  • Never compare yourself with big authors… → Even big authors started with 0 reads.;
  • Don’t stop promoting… Even if you reach the 1k reads, you still need to promote your story. :wink: When you stop promoting after those 1k reads… Your views will stuck at 1k reads. Duh :roll_eyes: :wink:;
  • Don’t hesitate to ask for help at other authors… They had to start somewhere, too. ;
  • Promote at instagram (Facebook) AND/OR on this forum (so you reach more readers);
  • And don’t forget to take breaks. If you have a writer block, don’t forget your story, but take a break and think about something else for a while. But don’t force yourself to write.;
  • Don’t expect you get readers immediately after you published (sounds ridiculous, but there are (starting) authors who think that if you publish magically those readers will appear out of nowhere…);
  • When the first hate mail comes in :point_right: don’t get demotivated. And don’t give up to write. You are here to write, because you like to write, not because that one negative person doesn’t like your story. You are here because you want to publish YOUR story. :wink: ;
  • Do R4R on this forum or ask for feedback from other authors…;
  • Directing advice → Don’t use exit left or right or enters left or right. It changes the size of the characters. So, children will become bigger if they exit or shrink when they enter.;
  • Please, no black screens for narration → use other backgrounds and characters with animations during narration;
  • Check your grammar… Before you publish, just check one more time for grammar and spelling;
  • If you use your own character (authors character) :point_right: don’t use it half of the story-time or a whole episode;
  • Don’t use one whole episode for CC… (If you have CC in your story);
  • You also can use: Joseph Evans’s YouTube clips for directing tips, Dara Amarie’s website (https://www.dara-amarie.com) for templates and also help from other authors at this forum;
  • Enjoy to write and don’t hesitate to ask me for more help by PM at this forum or DM on instagram (if you have instagram → @angelwings_1983 ).

Love A-W
