What makes a good fiction writer?

Post by LiamHarley » Mon January 31st, 2022, 12:59 pm

When you write a story, the writer's job is to entertain, transport, and draw an emotional response from the reader. There are many different styles of fiction book writing services that can do this, such as suspenseful thrillers or heartwarming romance novels. Readers often want to get drawn into and experience the story for themselves - to be swept up in an emotional response and forget about reality for a while. The best stories don't just happen- they're crafted with care and research.

I think among all the points you made- a good fiction writer is definitely marked out by their talent for evoking emotional affect in many myriads of nuances, from stylistic options to how one can bend language to say the exact thing meant. I think precision of grammatical precision and sentence agreement etc can be managed with proofreading tools like Grammarly or even Bartleby.
