Why Your Story Shouldn’t Be Too Tidy

Why Your Story Shouldn’t Be Too Tidy | Litteris | Scoop.it
Why do silly things happen? Why hiccups? Why, when you find a discarded shoe by the roadside, is it only ever one shoe?

 

Savants lust to describe these phenomena. (Mathematics always come into it.) But they cannot explain them. The ‘what’ is easy. The ‘why’ of anything whatever—the ultimate reason—eludes us.

 

How can this insight help us to write better stories? A story that endures is one that holds a central mystery. Not everything is explained. Every loose end is not tidied up.

 

Nor can it be. That’s life.

Resist Giving Characters A Helping Hand

Resist Giving Characters A Helping Hand | Litteris | Scoop.it

It is tempting, especially at the beginning of a story, to have things happen in a way that is convenient, just to get the ball rolling.

 

But the temptation for a writer to lend a hand, to put their character in the right place at the right time, makes it harder to get to know the character. You are in fact delaying the start of the story.
