The world we live in is diverse in terms of information, from truth and lies; science, theory and religion; facts and faith. We are emotionally intelligent beings with a forever advancing emotional intelligence, we read for the sake of learning, but some book genres are so constructed to arouse emotional reactions.

There exist many book genres and different authors with their own particular style of writing, each genre/category with a writing style of its own.

One genre in particular, 'fiction,' is a genre that requires a writing skill-set that will capture the imagination of the reader form the get-go.

Here are a few tips for writers who want to venture into the writing of 'books of fiction':

1) A captivating prologue.

When a fiction book reader wants to select a book for their reading pleasure, there isn't enough time to go through the entire book, or even the first chapter for that matter and then make a decision of whether a particular fiction book would be a great read or not.

The aim of a captivating prologue would be a determining factor of whether of not a particular fiction book would be worth the time.

- 'It was the midnight hour,

2) Great imagination.

Fiction books are not often based on real life events word for word, but are more on the lines of invented content, which requires great imagination. The approach of writing books of fiction really depends on the writer, some writers twist and turn a real life event, spice up the experience and turn it into a great fiction read.

3) Tone, language and creativity.

Books vary in tone from one page to the next, the use of words should paint vivid images in your psych to understand the emotions of the writer.

As a writer, it becomes of vital importance to be explicit in the writing of fiction books. There is a great difference in saying:

-'She sat at her bedside table with a pen in her hand and diary on the desk' as opposed to to,

- 'It was the midnight hour, the restless and emotionally distraught teenager sat at her bedside table in her poorly lit room as the raindrops fell gently against her bedroom window, with just enough light for her to write a note, of which would probably be her last.'


The first example is just information, the second example however, takes the reader and places the reader into the position of the fictional character.

4) Pick your content wisely

There are a wide variety of fiction books, it is important that as a writer you figure out what is it exactly that works for you as a writer and then further develop in that particular field of fiction.

Attempting to be a jack of all trades could possibly lead to the reader not understanding the position that the fictional character is in, as the possibility of switching between fields of fiction in each book is a looming possibility.

If you fancy the idea of writing science fiction, stick to that path and then grow in it.

5) Sequence

Always try to build up towards the big moments of which your book is about, from one chapter to the next. If the prologue is about a suicide or murder investigation, a viable approach would be to start the first chapter on a happy and peaceful note and the gradually drift into the nitty-gritty of the book, which will keep the reader on the note of "I wonder what is going to happen next."

Fiction reading is a great way to entertain the mind and allow it to wonder into a world of wilderness, however it is the writer's responsibility to ensure that the reader is taken out of the real and into a virtual world by means of a great book.

So to beginning writer, it is important to find what genre of content creating you'd be good at.
