Whenever I write a story, I always try to figure out what to add to make the story more action packed or interesting.
Because without any adventure or action it wouldn’t be a story it would be more of an incomplete story.
And you have to make sure the story has the right words or sentence. You don’t want a jumbled up story with only using simple words or words you use over and over again. One example is the word would.
The word can be easily used many times, but it can get annoying pretty quickly. So maybe use it once, then use other words to make the sentence much easier to read for the reader.
And make sure the story is proof read before you do anything else. You may have to fix any errors or someone will point it out for you if you decide to send it to a test audience first to let them read it.
