This article is a guide to writing fiction – the way we tell stories. I mean – really. It’s not an exhaustive list of literary techniques, but a fairly basic approach that can lead to a lot of great fiction.
The most important thing to remember when writing fiction is a clear goal. If you want to write a great story, you’ve got to have a clear goal and go for it. Otherwise, you aren’t going to be very happy with the results.
What do most writers do when they write? They write! Writers, in general, write to make money. That’s not to say they are lazy or that they don’t get any enjoyment out of writing – but most people arent particularly driven by a desire to make money. They may have a strong desire to write something that will entertain, but they have a strong desire to make money. Thats pretty much it.
the goal, the story, the characters, and the setting are all important things to consider when writing. The story and characters (and the setting) are what you put into your story to make it happen. If youre not sure what you are doing, here is a list of some tips on how to write the best possible story.
I wrote a piece for the Daily, but I dont want to say too much about it because it was a lot of work (not to mention the fact that I had some weird friends asking me to write it) and I am sure I will regret the decision to do it. Writing fiction can be the most fun if youre not doing it to make money, but it can also be a lot more work.
Writing fiction is a lot more work than writing non-fiction. One of the biggest differences is that you have to set up your story in such a way that it makes sense. Non-fiction is set in the past, so you can follow your characters through the day, and in fiction you have to develop the story as you go.
Fiction is more detailed, so it requires a lot more research. Non-fiction is more broad in scope, so it’s easier to just read a bunch of books. Fiction is also set in a specific place, so you can go there to see it from different perspectives, and in non-fiction you can only go there to get a lecture.
As with all writing, there is a place for everything, and there is a place for everything in fiction. It’s just about setting up the story so that your characters and world feel believable. For non-fiction, you can always rely on the research of another writer or on the imagination of a good friend.
In fiction, its important to know what to expect and learn as you go. For example, in a thriller you need to know what happens next, and in a historical book you need to know what it was like in the past. Fiction can be a great way to learn about an area you don’t know a lot about.
When you’re reading about your own story, don’t expect to learn anything from your own knowledge. The more knowledge you have on the subject of your own stories, the better it will be to your story.
