Step 1. Click on the ‘CREATE NEW STORY BUTTON’ here in your profile area or in the drop down menu which opens when you click your profile image in the top right of the header.
Step 2. Come up with a creative writing idea!
Your piece of writing can be short, long, fictional, non-fictional, any genre you fancy, a poem, a haiku, a short story or a long story with chapters. It’s totally up to you!
And if you suffering a writer’s block or stuck for ideas, don’t forget you can use our TOPIC GENERATOR button. Keep clicking until you generate a writing idea you want to write about. Feel free to edit the topic generated too!
Step 3. Then let your imagination flow and simply start writing! You can add headline font sizes, italics, bold text and bullet points using the text formatting options located at the top of the writing area.
Step 4. Come up with a clever title for your writing and type it into the title field.
Step 5. Add some keyword tags which describe your story. Type them one at a time, hitting Enter after each one, to add them to your story. Keyword tags allow your story to be found by readers browsing the Little Writer platform.
Step 6. Draw or design a cover image that relates to your story. If it’s a drawing, simply take a nice clear photo of it so you have a digital version to easily upload. Then either drag and drop your image to the large green box where it says ‘Drop Your Image Here or Select Image’ or click the SELECT IMAGE button to browse and select your image file from your computer.
Step 7. And that’s it! You are ready to publish your piece of writing. Hit the red PUBLISH STORY button in the top right to publish live to the Little Writer platform.
Or if you aren’t yet ready to publish right away you can also save your writing as a draft by clicking the SAVE AS DRAFT button. This saves your story so you can come back and publish it later on.
Remember, the more creative stories you write, the more chances you have of earning Golden Quills and Trophies. So, keep that creativity flowing!
