The most asked question by people who are thinking about writing a book is, can anyone learn to write books? And if so, how? Learn to write, is that possible?
Almost anyone who can read and write is also able to write a book. Which is not synonymous with the fact that every human being can write a book that other people want to read.
But at least three-quarters of what makes a good book, or better yet a good story, is easy to learn. Plot and structure of a story, the development of characters, all this is pure craft that everyone can understand and absorb.
It gets a bit more challenging to develop a good writing style.
That, too, is not a big problem, but it requires one thing above all, practice!
In the worst case scenario, that can be achieved by years of practice. Reading countless books and, of course, writing one.
Ask any writer if he would voluntarily show you one of his first works, most of them will just shake their heads in laughter because they think their initial attempts are just not good enough.
A gift of observation and a touch of people skills, which usually develops as a result of observing other people.
If you don’t just let your environment rush by, but actively perceive and think about it, stories are already forming in your mind.
For example, look out the window and see two people arguing in the street, think of something they might argue about!
Watch them and compare how they argue! How does each person argue, and why?
Conflicts reveal the true character of a person; as it goes. That’s true in real life as well as in the development of matters of your book.
To be clear, yes, of course, many things must come together to write a bestseller.
That includes not only good observations, a pleasant style and knowledge of the structure of a story but also lots of luck and maybe the right relationships.
But just writing a book, a book that may sell a few thousand copies, any reasonably educated and intelligent person can quickly learn, and I have made it my mission to assist you in this.
