Ron’s Tip of the Day Event Writing

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. Today I am looking at Event Writing.

Have you ever noticed how soon movies come out regarding an event that just occurred? I have. And it has occurred to me that it is probably true of writing as well.

For instance, writing a novel that takes place during the COVID-19 pandemic would be an example of event writing. The novel could be centered on the patient, the doctor, government, the race for a cure, and more.

Such a book, assuming it was well written, might have bestseller promise. The thing is that there is already a promotion campaign of sorts going on. It is called news.

For clarity, I have never written a book based on a current event. On the other hand, current events have inspired me to write books occurring in a different era but perhaps including the event or similar event in that book. It is not that hard to find comparisons in this era to past eras.

But I would argue that just because the topic is current and maybe ‘hot’ it doesn’t mean that you just throw something together. It might sell, but once people discover it is not a well written book the sales might fade or even stop. You always want to put your best efforts into your books.

Tip of the Day: Take a look at Event Writing. It might be just what you need.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Reopening

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Reopening.

Florida is moving toward reopening for business. So far they’ve reopened beaches, parks, and restaurants. It looks like it will be a step by step approach. Take a step, evaluate the risks and the actual results, then if okay take another step.

Some people oppose any reopening of businesses until we’ve reached a certain level of testing that may not be achieved for months. I think that would be a disaster. I understand the fear, but we can’t let fear determine our future.

But the health experts say we should wait.

That is true and it is why you don’t put health experts in control of a nation, or a state, or a community. They have value, but they tend to be myopic, in my opinion. They only see the risk to physical and mental health. And that is what should be their concern.

Economic advisors, on the other hand, only see the economic risks. They would also be dangerous if put in command.

A better idea is to have a non-healthcare person, say a Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis, who is advised by health experts and economic experts, make the call. He balances the two out while understanding there is risk whichever way he goes. That is one reason he holds the office.

Tip of the Day : A guided, balanced approach to reopening is the best way to go.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Write About Events

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Write About Events.

I write primarily either historical events and people or future events and people. But a case can be made for writing about current events. There are a lot of possibilities; here’s a few:

  • Coronavirus survival stories

A lot more people have survived this virus than have died. You could write factual or fictional stories about someone surviving.

  • Fastest government response ever

I’ve lived for almost 77 years. I’ve never seen such a fast response from Republican or Democratic administrations! This is fodder for stories about doctors, nurses, etc. risking their lives to stem the spread and save lives.

  • Impeachment fiasco

Although the trial is over, Democrats are still threatening impeachment. How about a novel based on the Steele Dossier? Or about a conspiracy to bring down the President? Plenty of information out there; some fact and some fiction.

  • Modern Terrorism

Seems like terrorism is taking place somewhere every day.

  • SpaceX and the future

I’ve actually included this is my new mystery novel. Not only can you write about SpaceX, but the new Space Force forming.

  • Election fraud

Since the government will probably never tell, why not write a novel about Hillary Clinton’s eMail server, Hillary’s use of classified information, Russian collusion (false or true, Trump or Clinton), or current manipulations.

Tip of the Day: There’s a lot happening in today’s world. Just look.
