Do you read good fiction books? Fiction writing is fun, easy, and creative. It allows the mind to wonder and relax in the thinking process. The wonder process, we will call it: brainstorming. Fiction writing let whatever is in the mind; suspense, romance, horror, fantasy, and other creative ideas come to life in writing. A good fiction book can be either one of these subjects or others. A good fiction book has an interesting plot, different characters, chaotic scenes, and common settings. What makes a fiction book good depends on the ‘reader that reads the book’, the quality of the book can vary from reader to reader.
Fiction writing is writing for the imagination, letting it be free. Most authors of fiction may agree that writing fiction is the authors telling their desires, experiences, insights, and beliefs. All of this is created into a delightful story, a story that resonates with the reader. When the imagination is involved, the writing process is easier and quicker. Writing a fiction story is listening to the story inside the mind and placing the story on the paper.
There are authors, writers, and bloggers that prefer to write nonfiction and chooses not to write fiction. Nonfiction writing requires the writer to do accurate research, paraphrase correctly and use direct quotes. This writing allows a writer to be less creative and imaginative in their work. Nonfiction writers may find writing fiction a more joyful experience. Fiction writers may find nonfiction tedious and plain. Every writer should explore fiction writing because it reflects the writers true creativity.
