What are some good techniques for writing a book?

I think I could write a good book.


Answer by  musicbox107 (23)

While some techniques are more dependent on what type of book you intend to write (non-fiction, fiction, ecetera), there is an essential element that isn't genre specific. Show, don't tell. For example, don't say that Sandy is happy. Put her in situations in which she performs certain actions- actions that make the READER think, "Hmm, she's happy. "

Carry a small notebook with you. Write small notes, don't even have to be full sentences. Make timelines, establish characters. And don't lose track of what you want to say.

Non-fiction should be somewhat linear and focused on a short time period. Fiction should have character development and a chapter guide done prior to writing anything.

Write the outline of the chapters or the story overview. Then fill in the details of the plot for fiction or the details of your research for the non-fiction book. Have the whole view of what you will write before you start, from start to ending, so that you do not get writer's block trying to finish it.

A good idea for writing a book is to think about what readers would currently be interested in but also write about what you love. Then start writing.
