Forging stories

Writing a story was never my strong point and though I have improved with time I still find it difficult to write fiction.

Most of the stories I write are based on some incident in my life or of those around me and I fictionalize it to make it more interesting, and less like an account of a real incident.

Forging stories out of thin air is a skill that few people possess, sadly I’m not one of them.

That’s the reason that I love prompts, story starters, phrases, or scene settings that make my brain come up with a plot and write accordingly.

I still do try to write fictional tales to expand my horizons and to acquire new skills, but I do have a sneaking suspicion that my stories tend to have similar plots and run along the same lines.

If you are a frequent reader of my stories, please tell me how interesting or repetitive you find my writing.

  1. It can be easy to write around the same idea, but I don’t get that feeling with your stories. I enjoy them and the positive outlook that you often weave into your posts. Keep writing. 🙂

  2. the only form of repetition that your writing has is wisdom and that’s what makes your writing style unique, Sadje G🤍
    We all benefit from that 🙏

    Each one is different and teaches a different lesson.

  3. I have to agree with the other insightful comments, your work is positive, engaging, and refreshing. Sadje Yep, we will be repetitive, regardless of the story, poem, or article. It’s how we put a fresh spin on the topic. That’s what you do my dear! 🤗💖🥰

  4. Like everyone else Sadje, I enjoy your writing. I think all ideas are probably triggered from somewhere, so prompts work for you – I’d say just go with the flow. What you’re doing works
