First of all, it’s important for the story and dialogue to sound like someone is actually speaking. The best way to do this is by using your own experiences as inspiration – use situations from your life or make lists on what has happened in other people’s lives that might help with different plot points!
Now that you have a good idea of your characters, it’s time to plan out their story. One way is by using post-its – this will help keep things organized!
One of the most important keys to a successful comic book is getting your audience’s attention right at the beginning. A good way to do this in comics as opposed to traditional books or movies, for example, is by introducing suspense early on and making it clear that something needs resolving before proceeding onward with story details. This sets up an expectation from readers about what happens next which will help keep them interested until they get there! In addition you’ll want to take into account things like tone when deciding how certain scenes should be played out since these elements can make all sorts of difference depending on who reads them too.
In order to create momentum when writing your characters and stories, it pays off to make sure they never know what’s coming next. The best way of doing this is by dividing up chapters into smaller segments that each have their own climax so as not to overwhelm one particular moment with too much excitement at once–thus giving them all an equal chance at being the most memorable thing about your story!
For print, the coolest moments should happen every time you flip to a new page. As someone who consumes both digital and print mediums, this is something that I’ve personally noticed when reading stories on my Kindle or in physical form.
