It is a way to see your dreams become alive on the page and to share your nightmares. Everyone can learn how to write- it just takes being able to see the world in a new way. Like any artist, you need to let go of the old way of seeing and be open to new possibilities. In the following chapters, I will give you the structure of a well crafted fiction story. This is not an English lesson, so you will need to learn those rules elsewhere. Although sentence structure and grammar are very important, they are only a starting point. This work will teach you the basics of fiction, including how to create believable characters, plot organization, story formatting, and warnings of what to look for when choosing a publisher. In addition, I will help you find low cost marketing and promotional opportunities, which will help make your book successful.There have been many debates whether it s the plot or the characters, which are more important. In my opinion, they are equal. If you don t have unique characters who are exciting and unique, the piece will be boring. Yet if you put them in predictable situations and plots, you will get the same results. There is no such thing as a completely evil person, or a completely good person. Everyone is an exceptional mixture of both. Nor does the evil character ever seem herself or himself as such. Frequently, it is this self unawareness that is the major friction in the story. By creating situations where the characters must face their own dark side, the writer forces us all to look at the negative aspects of our own lives and question our motives. It s always easier to see both the positive and negative in others, than it is to see it within ourselves. For most writers, their characters are factions of themselves and others in their lives. By bringing them to life on the printed page, they are able to explore their devil and angel sides in a safe way, while being able to share the experience with others.Research is a major part of both fiction and non-fiction writing. The author s credibility is based on how well they know their characters, the environment, and the focal topic. If your character is a doctor, you will need to know the basics about medicine- what kind of education and experience doctors need to put the MD behind their name. In addition, you will need to know about their environment. A cater will have to know how to cook, but if you cast her or him as the cater at NASA or other governmental organization, she or he will also have to know about security and anything unique about that specific institute.The more you know about your characters and their situation, the more credible detail you can put into your work and the more interesting it will be.
