How to: make an interesting story

Ooook! First off, this is my first 'how to' be nice!

Now, if you're going to be making a story, you have to think of an original storyline. Not the usual girl falls in love with boy or depressed girl who wears nothing but skinny leg jeans meets her favourite band and marries them. We've had enough of them!

Imagination: 1. the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses. 2. the action or process of forming such images or concepts.

Ok! See that? Use your imagination! A story is your ideas, not somebody elses ideas put down in your own words! It could be about being dragged into space by a flower-eating cowboy or even being stuck in a box for twelve years! Who knows? It's your imagination! Use it!

Now, this what I usually do for the beginning of a story. If you want a good beginning, imagine your story up on a big movie screen. How do you want the movie to begin? Should it begin on a beach? A cafe? Should your main character be a girl or a boy? Happy? Sad? Fat? Skinny? Ugly? Pretty? You have to ask yourself questions before beginning! And if planning is what you do, plan, plan, plan!

Oh and when writing your story, please, please, please use correct grammar and spelling! I hate reading stories that are like this:

"OMG! Is that SERIOUSLY billie joe!!!!!!!!!!?"

Ok so I'm not here to tell you how to write your story or what to write about, but those are just a few tips on using your imagination and trying to get a clearer picture of what you're writing. Plan, ask yourself questions and imagine!

The story is all yours, it can be about anything that you want it to be about! Hell, it can even be about how bored you are! Just go for it! Let your imagination free!

I'm sorry if this is terrible x]
