Every story you share, be it pitching your dream to an investor, making a speech, or writing about your business online, you must have these three components–no exceptions:
1. A BEGINNING.
2. A MIDDLE.
3. AN END.
Sounds oversimplified, but the task of story writing can be daunting because most people don’t understand its basic construction.
One quick and easy way to get a handle on that story and make the writing process easier is to ensure it has a distinct beginning, middle, and end.
Starting your story can sometimes feel overwhelming. A great place to begin is by first making yourself sit down at your writing place, then start with either a vision for something in the future or looking back in the past where something began.
Then start writing what comes up for you.
