A Writers Personal Expression Is Distinct

Writing that comes from your experience is unique to you and no one can replace your life knowledge.  Finding your distinct style is the same, in the expression of events directing the reader to an exciting understanding.  Personal expression of the writer through these events, include the plot and deciding the mood.  Read similar books for techniques and inspiration for development not duplicating.  This helps a writer to generate new creative writing ideas and to become the best they have to be.

Decide the time to spend for a weekly writing schedule and follow through with it.  Connect with readers by adding purposes, anticipation and surprise.  As the source create characters to keep readers company and hold their attention.  Introduce the protagonist with history, faults or challenge, what they may bring and carry with them. Entering into the story the protagonist has a goal.  Story plot and inner conflict can keep the protagonist from attaining that goal.  Reveal the protagonists conflict and inner resistance.  How will your protagonist get past the sensitive situations or pressures to attain the goal?  With descriptive action and interaction what do the results reveal?  Of three emotional scenes, one with learned experience at or near the end, decide if the protagonist attains the goal.

Protagonist Versus Antagonist - Made More Interesting In Literature

When there is tension in dialogue it is more interesting.  Tension can be created when pursuing or attracting someone and forcing their move toward or with the opposing force.  With conflict an essential basic element in a plot the antagonist opposes the protagonist then conflict and tension follow or occur as a result.

A loss resulting in harm is barely perceptible when there are big stakes and a solution is given to the protagonist.  When that solution is a life changing loss the protagonist or the main character is being manipulated by the antagonist as a villain (the bad guy,) and against whom a hero (the good guy) fights in order to help himself or give aid others.

The antagonist precedes arbitrarily with a theft even when that could cause an inner or a moral conflict inside his mind.  An antagonist usually will want to escape notice of their intentional removing to deprive of any type of property.  Ensuring their security of a position hidden or not as a type of recognized authority, and or possibly partially concealed by official documents in place.  Most antagonist promotion strategies could apply a documents context to any or all of their actions to reinforce their position as official.  An antagonist and his group identity’s shows qualities that are in contrast with qualities of the protagonist.  

Threats to result in harm done by a malicious antagonist are when the antagonist usually tries to ensure that someone else gets punishment.  Even a document could be used by the antagonist to stave off any punishment to avoid defeat or downfall.  The protagonist is forced to comply with arbitrary official document demands, a form of intimidation.  The antagonist struggles against the protagonist taking the plot to the crisis the major turning point.

The crisis is placed close to the conclusion.  The conclusion is the protagonist retains his worked for or earned belongings, such as home, vehicle, possessions and right to continue financial management.  The antagonist is no longer allowed access to literally sell and throw away belongings or the protagonist into the street as homeless.  The list of antagonist applicants to determine the protagonists’ financial management for gains to whatever areas hostile or not, with protagonist levels of learning could be left as a cliff hanger story end.  The applicants odious human trafficking continues in applied policy levels by official sanctioning and appointment.

What the protagonist understands and what the antagonist understands, does it come out in their conversation?  Does the antagonist interpret a response as criticism becoming indignant with whatever levels of education and or experience or point out documented text?

With the protagonist are his goals expressed versus the antagonist’s goals?  If responses are on the surface there are no layers of subtle meaning.  In real life people are not always open, honest, and or good at communication.

Characters could manipulate or evade, tell half-lies or lies of omissions or out-and-out lies. Do they misunderstand each other and or themselves?  Readers experience the scene through the viewpoint character's perceptions.

Tension By Revealing Writing Technique

As the story unfolds the increasing size of something or less extensive than it first appears is one tension technique.  The following example is an excerpt from my latest Thriller book.

On one of the turns she happened to glance up above the
tree line. In the sky there was a white disc object; red fiery
hollow rings started to come from it. Actually it seemed they
were coming closer, and were growing larger the closer they
got to her.
She turned a corner and the disc was covered by a mountain
ridge. That’s better she thought, I’ll bet Jay has never seen anything
like that. Wait until I tell him about it, I know he’s into
physics. What fun he’ll be so excited to know what is flying
just north of his city. She took another drink of white chocolate
mocha coffee.
Anna drove many miles as the curved highway 101 followed
the coastline. She rounded a curve to find herself in the strange
swirls of a misty fog bank. She saw light blue areas in the white
fog. Farther into the fog she slowed her car down.
Small water droplets began hitting her windshield from
the thick fog. She could see the fog droplets were rotating
in a light blue glow as they generated in mid-air just in front
of her car. The droplets were spiral spreading outward and
became smaller.
Anna realized her simple drive south had become a
white knuckle ride to stay on the highway, in almost stop
driving conditions.
Slow driving through the strange thick fog for over an hour,
brought her out into a thin mist that sparkled with gold sun
streaks. Anna felt a sweep of relief; finally she had navigated
out of the strange fog.
Somehow the air had changed from moist and cold to heat
with no transition. She turned her heater off while the outside
air heat increased reminding her of a desert in summer.
Ahead above the highway the sky looked anything but
normal. Earths blue sky had a green sparkle that swept over
and showered down through it.
Anna decided earth must have taken a near direct hit from a
gigantic solar flare. Even her cars radio had news stations that
were talking about the sun’s increased solar activity.
She hoped the high temperatures would return to normal
soon. The crescent shape flare rapidly swept in a point toward
the west, its heat effect and sparkling green had disappeared.
Anna didn’t expect the drive from Coos Bay, Oregon to
Crescent City, California to be unpleasant. She hadn’t realized
the weather would transform her trip into a terrifying series
of events.
Driving time passed quietly with nothing more out of the
ordinary. She was almost alone on the highway; she noticed
that few cars had driven past her. She turned the heater on
again; the open ocean air once again was still cool in the
late spring.
