Unreliable narrator

Writing a story with an unreliable narrator is very difficult!  When they don’t turn up on time it can be very confusing for the reader to know what is going on.  Or when they, heaven forbid, make up their own lines, it is very difficult to make your story follow your plot.  So begin a story by building a reliable narrator.  Invest in them, make them feel needed and wanted.  Write them as whole so they know who they are and what they need to do.  You must first make your narrator believe you are really telling their story, so they they will reliably tell yours.
