A story, told well, stays forever in the hearts and minds of the listeners. There are plentiful factors that can be instrumental in drawing the attention and interest of listeners towards the narrator, voice being the most crucial.
Protagonists are always under the spotlight. Powerful protagonists are important, but where would they be without an antagonist? Without an antagonist, they wouldn’t be who they are, and there would be no story to tell.
What is a story? A story is a narrative form of ideas, fantasy or just imagination from different corners on a paper. It is a way of conveying a message, moral or an act of goodness and generosity in the reader’s mind. Why do we enjoy reading stories? It is the idea of the story that makes us delve deep into it. Imagine a story being like “A character going to the market, purchasing some groceries and coming back home”. Will this plot turn out into a good story without any twist, conflict or an interesting element in it? Not really.
Writing. It has been here since, well, forever and is perhaps one of the most underrated art forms in the world. Think about it. Your daily newspaper is written, books are written, your favourite songs have lyrics which are written, laws and rules are written. It is perhaps an art which governs the whole world.
