Many people write stories. Their subjects are very different: beauty, life in the future, love, romantic encounters, bad break-ups, stories which that are close to their lives, horror, funny stories.
I like writing short stories. What about you? Have you ever written a story?
Fiction and You
Prolific author Dwight V. Swain teaches in his instructive book, Techniques of the Selling Writer that covers writing tips and improving practical skills necessary for fiction writing.
Emotions, he says, are the integral part of fiction writing. To prove it, plot your characters by putting them in conflicts, dangers, and even near-death fights, and then, later save them. Of course, without letting your readers know that they will not die in the end. You will keep your readers hooked through to the end. Just keep the details short, simple, clear and concise.
That is a great tip, and to some extent this is what I have used in some of my fiction work.
