Yesterday I wrote about Biblical novels, what about any historical novel. Very similar.
Writing a Bible-based novel can be successful or risky. But if you use these simple guidelines you should be able to appeal to a large audience.
The Bible talks about there being a time for this and a time for that. Is there a time for swearing? Don’t people swear?
Of course, they do! And some people, not all, swear profusely. But should a writer include swear words?
A good practice is to always preview your book before publishing. You don’t want the gutter too big that it becomes part of the front or back covers. Nor do you want it too small causing the front and back covers to overlap the gutter.
‘a thousand words can paint a picture’
There is a lot of good advice about character traits. We can all learn to do better regarding our character traits. But why not go further and become the character?
The plot is the framework of the story. It’s the structure upon which you build, insert characters, scenes and the like. You want to always keep the plot in the back of your mind so you can call it back when needed.
If you have previously written books, then you already have something to gauge who is your audience.
But then I learned the trouble with narration. It could detract from a story.
you need imagination to tell a story. And story telling is basically the ability or act of writing down or vocally relating your imagined or true story. Again, as children you probably did this with your friends. For example, girls do it with their doll houses and boys might do it with their toy trucks, etc.
