FICTION “WRITING WISDOM”

FICTION                       “WRITING WISDOM”

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS FICTION WRITING.  FICTION IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO WRITE.  WE GET TO USE OUR CREATIVE JUICES  AND FLOW TO DETERMINE THE BEGINNING, MIDDLE, AND END OF A NOVEL, SHORT STORY OR SONG.  SONGWRITING IS A GREAT EXAMPLE TO USE WHEN DISCUSSING WRITING FICTION, ESPECIALLY COUNTRY WESTERN SONGS.  COUNTRY WESTERN SONGS ARE OFTEN BASED ON THE HEARTACHES MOST OF US EXPERIENCE IN LIFE.  FOR EXAMPLE, MOST OF US CAN SAY THERE IS SOMEONE IN OUR PAST OR PRESENT THE WE KNOW WAS OR IS OUR TRUE LOVE AND IT SIMPLY DOESN’T WORK OUT. 

THIS IS WHEN A SAD COUNTRY SONG CAN DO JUSTICE TO OUR EMOTIONS.  ALTHOUGH THE SONGWRITER  OR NOVELIST IS CREATING A “FICTIONAL STORY”, IT IS BASED ON SINCERE EMOTIONS THE WRITER HAS FELT AT SOME POINT IN THEIR OWN LIFE.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY MEANING OF “FICTION” AND DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF FICTION.  

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF FICTION-LITERATURE IN THE FORM OF PROSE, ESPECIALLY SHORT STORIES, AND NOVELS THAT DESCRIBES IMAGINARY EVENTS AND PEOPLE. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF FICTION-ANY STORY WE WRITE BASED ON OUR CREATIVITY  

1.  USE OUR ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS!  ADD COLOR WITH DESCRIPTIONS NOT ONLY FOR YOUR READER BUT FOR YOU. 

2.  READ AS MUCH AS YOU WRITE. THIS GOES FOR. ANY WRITING WE DO.  OFTEN I GET THE QUESTION HOW MY BLOG, DAILY WISDOM WORDS PLAYS A ROLE IN WRITING.  THE MORE WORDS WE KNOW WITH DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ON THESE WORDS, THE MORE TOOLS WE HAVE TO WRITE.  FICTION IS DEFINITELY IN NEED OF THIS FOR IT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL WORK OF ART. 

3.  HAVE A FEW TWISTS AND TURNS WITH THE ANTAGONIST AND PROTAGONIST IN YOUR NOVEL.  IF YOU ARE TRUE TO CHARACTER, USE A SURPRISE ENDING FOR YOUR NOVEL OR STORY/BLOG.  4. MAKE YOUR CHARACTERS LIFELIKE AND DISTINCTIVE.  IF YOU THINK ABOUT ANYONE, WE REALLY LEARN MORE FROM WHAT THEY DO VERSUS WHAT THEY SAY, OR IN MOST CASES NOT SAY.  KEEP IN MIND ALWAYS, REAL PEOPLE ARE CREATURES OF HABIT. THIS IS IMPORTANT WHEN USING TWISTS AND TURNS WITH CHARACTERS IN YOUR WRITING. 

4.  KEEP IN MIND, EVERYONE LIKES A “HAPPY ENDING”.   IF YOU ARE WRITING FICTION, IT’S UP TO YOU TO CREATE THIS.  I DON’T WANT TO SAY ALL “FICTION NOVELS” SHOULD HAVE A HAPPY ENDING.  I SAY THIS REMINDING YOU HOW MUCH POWER YOU HAVE OVER FICTIONS CREATIVITY VERSUS TRUE STORIES WHERE YOU MUST STICK TO FACTS. 

5.  CHOOSE YOUR NARRATIVE. STRUCTURE.  WILL YOUR NOVEL OR STORY UNFOLD IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER?  THIS IS A LINEAR PLOT STRUCTURE.  NONLINEAR PLOT STRUCTURE.   EVENTS WITHIN THE STORYLINE, CHARACTERS WITH DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES, DON’T FOLLOW ORDER BUT PERSPECTIVES.  PARALLEL PLOT STRUCTURE IS ALSO A CHOICE WHERE STORYLINES RUN CONCURRENT WITH MULTIPLE CHARACTERS AT THE SAME TIME OR CIRCULAR PLOT STRUCTURE.  THERE ARE MORE WAYS TO PRESENT STORYLINES, BUT THIS WILL BE DISCUSSED IN A FUTURE ARTICLE.

6.  WILL YOUR STORY BE TOLD FROM A FIRST PERSON POINT OF VIEW OR A THIRD PERSON POINT OF VIEW? 

7.  LESS IS MORE.  SHARING LESS, SLOWING UNFOLDING THE DYNAMICS OF CHARACTERS LEAD TO A READER CONTINUING TO TURN THE PAGES! 

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE I COULD DETAIL ABOUT WRITING FICTIONAL NOVELS OR STORIES, BUT THIS IS AN EXCELLENT START.  HAVE QUESTIONS?  SCROLL DOWN BENEATH THIS POST AND JOIN THE DISCUSSION!  I WILL ALWAYS ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.  MY BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE COME FOR HUNDREDS OF BOOK REVIEWS DONE AND KNOWING WHAT WORKS AND DOES NOT.  I ALSO RESEARCH TOP ARTICLES AND CHECK MY INFORMATION TO MAKE SURE I AM GIVING YOU PROPER GUIDANCE.  THANKS FOR READING ABOUT DEVELOPMENT OF EXCELLENT FICTION-CHARACTERS AND WORLDS.  JOIN DAILY WISDOM WORDS TO BECOME A BETTER WRITER.

Founder: Daily Wisdom Words, LLC. I love Poetry and am an Author as well.   There is a lot of meaning in the title of my book, Daily Wisdom Words, Volume l. My previous experience is in Sales and Marketing. Previously, I was in charge of Development through the Marketing and Sales of New Homes' in new home communities for close to 20 years.  I was a licensed Real Estate Broker selling/listing homes in the Colorado market.  While doing this, I hosted a cable network show called, "From Trees to Keys", my portion for Colorado Living Inc.. I enjoyed creating interview questions, working for Developers of New Home Communities, hosting Live on actual construction sites, describing and displaying on television camera various stages of construction as the home was built from start to finish. I interviewed various land developers, New Home Builders, Real Estate Brokers, and other people in the Real Estate Business for one year. Previous Experience: I was licensed through the "Securities and Exchange Commission" as a Principal for Limited Partnerships and sold them as well. I held a Series 22, 63, as well as License, to manage a brokerage firm called a series 39. I enjoyed running a small branch office of an Oil and Gas Company in Colorado for approximately one year. Hobbies: I have always loved Poetry and Writing.  I was declared "Permanently Disabled" due to Breast Cancer and CRPS-(Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome).  I began focusing on my writing. I volunteered for an online poetry community,  "Realistic Poetry" for approximately six months. I decided to start Daily Wisdom Words, LLC after volunteering for an online poetry community and thinking of ways that I would improve this concept and offer something for every KIND of #Writer:  Authors, Bloggers, Poets, Songwriters, Original Quote Creatives, and short story writers. I have two grown children, a son, 33, and a daughter 31,  who lives in Idaho with her husband.
