What is your best way to start a piece of fluff or a story?
Is it a prologue? Do you start after an event and re-tell it? Do you start in the middle of something? Please let me know, and why!
When I write I am not confident that I will get a clear enough picture accross to my audience if I start in the middle of something. Any tips?
umm...I think you mean how do you begin "writing" the story. A good story "starts" with a particuler idea, one that is so good, and you like so much it practically forms itself. This eventually leads into just the right beginning for that story. At least, that's how I tend to roll.
I can see how that might cause problems, since I havn't met very people that right in such a horrible manner as I.
So I assume you have a few good characters, a nice idea, and several plot points in a line to focus your righting whenver it may stray...
First tip, start at the beginning.
Unless of course you think that would be boring. You should always capture the readers attention write off the bat. This can be done with anything, it all depends on how interesting you make it. A slow beginning can be interesting due to it's mystery, a fast one can draw the reader in with combat. It can start with some very choice background to either the area or a character. Just make sure it shines. If you aren't happy with something, the reader most likely won't be either.
*Shrug, hope that helped...
