6 Facts About Tips Everyone Thinks Are True

Importance of Increasing the Vocabulary For a Fiction Author

On a regular basis, fiction authors use certain vocabularies when writing. For you to have a big number of words to choose from when writing, you need to learn other vocabularies. When you are a fiction writer it is best if you use verbs, nouns, modifiers and adjectives that best bring out the writing. How well you put together the words and the words themselves make up for good writing. When you are reading a novel that is engaging, it is easy to get into it. Reread the novel again after reading and enjoying it. The point of this is to analyse how the work has been written. The aspect of writing is where you should focus on, they include how the plot and characters were developed and the technical aspects like grammar. Be mindful of the fact that American and British authors write differently.

The authors differ in the use of words, spelling and punctuation. For instance, among is an American word and amongst is a British word. It is important that you stick to the standard rules when writing for American readers or for British readers.

Fiction authors can and should expand the base of the vocabulary that they use. Doing this is possible when they are reading another author’s work. A new vocabulary that you come across should be noted. Despite it being general knowledge, most authors do not do this. Besides it being a logical thing to do, it is one way of building your vocabulary. To make categories that suits your needs, get a notebook or any other means you desire. Anytime people are talking or when there is a dialogue on the TV or when you are reading, you should concentrate and listen keenly. Be mindful of verbs, nouns, modifiers and adjectives or any compound nouns being used. Chances are you will be surprised of the words you already use, the ones you didn’t know about and those you never thought of using. Keeping a list of the words or phrases that your characters might occasionally use is important. For example for the eyes, use a phrase like ‘her eyes surveyed the room’.

When you take note of such words or phrases, you are able to be creative enough to vividly describe what is going on internally and externally concerning your characters. When you make use of the lists that you kept, you will be able to write authentic and creative vocabulary. The first draft you make should use this list.
