How can I become a good fiction writer

How can I become a good fiction writer?

First of all I suppose its fiction not friction and these are tips from famous fiction writers…
Tip1: "My first rule was given to me by TH White, author of The Sword in the Stone and other Arthurian fantasies and was: Read.
Read everything you can lay hands on.
I always advise people who want to write a fantasy or science fiction or romance to stop reading everything in those genres and start reading everything else from Bunyan to Byatt.
" — Michael Moorcock
Tip 2: "Protect the time and space in which you write.
Keep everybody away from it, even the people who are most important to you.
" — Zadie Smith
Tip 3: "Introduce your main characters and themes in the first third of your novel.
If you are writing a plot-driven genre novel make sure all your major themes/plot elements are introduced in the first third, which you can call the introduction.
Develop your themes and characters in your second third, the development.
Resolve your themes, mysteries and so on in the final third, the resolution.
" — Michael Moorcock
Tip 4: "In the planning stage of a book, don't plan the ending.
It has to be earned by all that will go before it.
" — Rose Tremain
Tip 5: "Always carry a note-book.
And I mean always.
The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.
" — Will Self
Tip 6: "It's doubtful that anyone with an internet connection at his workplace is writing good fiction.
" — Jonathan Franzen
"Work on a computer that is disconnected from the internet.
" — Zadie Smith
Tip 7: "Interesting verbs are seldom very interesting.
" — Jonathan Franzen
Tip 8: "Read it aloud to yourself because that's the only way to be sure the rhythms of the sentences are OK (prose rhythms are too complex and subtle to be thought out—they can be got right only by ear).
" — Diana Athill
Tip 9: "Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
" – Anton Chekhov
Tip 10: "Listen to the criticisms and preferences of your trusted 'first readers.
'" — Rose Tremain
Tip 11: "Fiction that isn't an author's personal adventure into the frightening or the unknown isn't worth writing for anything but money.
" — Jonathan Franzen
Tip 12: "Don't panic.
Midway through writing a novel, I have regularly experienced moments of bowel-curdling terror, as I contemplate the drivel on the screen before me and see beyond it, in quick succession, the derisive reviews, the friends' embarrassment, the failing career, the dwindling income, the repossessed house, the divorce .
.
.
Working doggedly on through crises like these, however, has always got me there in the end.
Leaving the desk for a while can help.
Talking the problem through can help me recall what I was trying to achieve before I got stuck.
Going for a long walk almost always gets me thinking about my manuscript in a slightly new way.
And if all else fails, there's prayer.
St Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers, has often helped me out in a crisis.
If you want to spread your net more widely, you could try appealing to Calliope, the muse of epic poetry, too.
" — Sarah Waters
Tip 13: "The writing life is essentially one of solitary confinement – if you can't deal with this you needn't apply.
" — Will Self
Tip 14: "Be your own editor/critic.
Sympathetic but merciless!" — Joyce Carol Oates
Tip 15: "The reader is a friend, not an adversary, not a spectator.
" — Jonathan Franzen
Tip 16: "Keep your exclamation points under control.
You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
If you have the knack of playing with exclaimers the way Tom Wolfe does, you can throw them in by the handful.
" — Elmore Leonard
Tip 17: "Remember: when people tell you something's wrong or doesn't work for them, they are almost always right.
When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.
" — Neil Gaiman
Tip 18: "You know that sickening feeling of inadequacy and over-exposure you feel when you look upon your own empurpled prose? Relax into the awareness that this ghastly sensation will never, ever leave you, no matter how successful and publicly lauded you become.
It is intrinsic to the real business of writing and should be cherished.
" — Will Self
Tip 19: "The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you're allowed to do whatever you like.
(That may be a rule for life as well as for writing.
But it's definitely true for writing.
) So write your story as it needs to be written.
Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can.
I'm not sure that there are any other rules.
Not ones that matter.
" — Neil Gaiman
Tip 20: "The nearest I have to a rule is a Post-it on the wall in front of my desk saying ‘Faire et se taire’ (Flaubert), which I translate for myself as ‘Shut up and get on with it.
’" — Helen Simpson

There are many “best” ways to write a novel and it will be subjective to you; however, there are some common tips toward producing a novel.

1.
Remember to record impressive events and people in your own life,and narrate them in your novel.
Because sometimes real life is more novel than a novel.
One of my friends experienced her parents’ divorce and the strife between two families,and she wrote those things down.
The plots are too inconceivable to happen so we thought she made up it on her own.
She told me: Sometimes people are complicated,and one auther can’t be more complicated than a group of angry people.
Just telling the fact,that’s enough.

2.
Create a clear line of your story.
What I mean is making it clear in your mind,instead of saying it clearly in your story.
For example,my friend write her parents’ story to express her desire of trust and responsibility.
But you can also use these stories to condenm some ugly aspect of humanity.
Before you start to narrate your stories, make it clear what you want to express through them.
A steadfast theme can make your novel more understandable.
3.
Focus on details,
such as conversation,speech, appearance and looks.
That can beautify your novel,making it vivid.

Start by correcting the poorly worded question above…
Which are the best ways to write a novel?
Style is a unique factor; write what you know about…or research the daylights out of the material you need.
Formatting, editing, style, grammar, intended audience or readers.
Does your material overlap others or do you have niche material for new markets?
Never be afraid to extend yourself into the writer’s market…there are editions compiling what the Canadian and American Markets expect from writers…they are a learning tool…even receiving a rejection letter means you made it to the front lines! Use your rejection letters to re-define what you need to succeed.
Stay focused!

You get very, very busy and also must be very, very good at writing fiction, and must work very, very hard to acquaint strangers with the fact that you have written a book, what the book is about or what it has in it, and in such a way that they'll take time from their busy lives to read your book.
(This last part is called marketing.
)
About 400,000 novelists exist in the country at any given time, or about one per every 800 pe0ple.
In a small town of 2,500 there should be three, on average.
In every large metropolitan city there should be 1,250 per million residents.
How many of these people do you think actually make money?
Satisfy yourself that you are in the top tenth of the 99th percentile of these people, i.
e.
you will do better than 999 per thousand; that is your relative chance of earning a living writing fiction.

There is a minimum number of “things” a character has to do to that the author has to include in fiction to move the plot along.
But in addition, you should develop the habit of “seeing” more.
That is, at each point that a character is doing or saying something, what else is happening, what else is the character feeling, thinking, or see that adds interest and breadth to the story, and, of course, must relate to the story.

Just because you think it isn’t good doesn’t mean it isn’t.
We tend to be over critical of our own work.
I’m sure lots of great writers thought their books were not as good as they hoped and yet we love them.
Keep everything you write, even odd bits that go nowhere.
You will be surprised how those rejects can become useful at a later time.
I recently used something from my school days that was forty years old as a basis for a sixty thousand word ebook.
Go with the flow, just write.
You can edit grammar and chronology or add filling after.
Just get the thoughts out first.

Fiction=False story.
like.
Arabian nights.
magic carpet.
Flying saucer.
demon.
zombies.
inventing game like cricket and chess.
Time machine.
golden eggs.
Imagination.
Creation like humans and ants by god.
see the difference.
An absolutely new concept.
concentration.
God gifted writers.
Do not ever copy.
Followers are weak people.
Become a leader a hero.
Make something new and unique and interesting.
Last but not least knowledge of particular language is must.
Trust me it's not easy at all.

The basic concept behind fiction is that you can think in a different way than others.
You can imagine things that never happened to you and portrait them through your writings.
The major of all of the characteristic of fiction is that it is unpredictable.
So now for writing fiction, you need to make up a plot with connectivity of each and all incident.
When the plot is ready start giving surprises to situations, which makes a fiction interesting.
Try not to leave sequence and connectivity between scenes (you can master it with constant writing).
Give a proper start and a reliable end to your fiction.
Think beyond other people can think of.
But don’t just connect scenes without a proper relation, it leaves gaps (and people just guesses random things in that gaps).
Before starting, read about the things you will need in your plot.
Lets’s consider, Harry Potter Series by J.
K.
Rowling.
It is one of the best fiction and with a very few gaps in the story-line.
She nearly imagined and written about impossibilities like a school of wizards and witches but firmly defined how it was and made us believe that there some place like this can exist.
Every information was important and complete.
This is one of the thing you need to remember that your information must be complete and important.
I would again say, read some fiction before writing one.
HAPPY WRITING

First, is to develop some easiness writing.
This would take you a number of thousands of hours.
Second, is to analyze the market of fiction.
Not the actual best-sellers that are rather vintage.
But what the young people are actually reading.
This is a work for a Sherlock Holmes.
It would take you some time.
Do not focus on what the old people is reading, but younger people.
With this information, you can start to figure out what sort of novel can you write.

Three things that will help.

Write something every day, even if it’s just a paragraph.
Read a lot of books in the genre(s) you like and would like to write in.
Read well-reviewed books about writing.
Take classes to hone your craft.
Join a writer’s group.
It’s important to get other people to critique your work — constructively, of course.

Start following your favorite writers on Twitter.

First, figure out which fiction you’re writing.
Fiction genre…that has to be at least half the books published (I suspect more, but I don’t read much nonfiction, so I might be biased).

Which fiction are you writing? Literary fiction? Romance? Fantasy? Mystery? Horror? The list goes on and on, and we haven’t even started on the subdivisions.
Is your fantasy urban or epic? Your mystery, is it cozy or hardboiled? And so on.
Because every genre and subgenre will create expectations in readers, expectations that you have to fulfill (or be amazing in subverting).
Word count, ammissibility of sex scenes and gore…this and more depend on your genre (and subgenre).

Sit down and read.
It can help you understand what you want to write which leads to planning.
Plan out the story, make some notes and keep a writing schedule that'll keep burn out from happening, as it will effect your work ethic.
Research the topics you are interested in for the story.
Don't forget first hand accounts, they'll help it more.
Keep yourself in good health.
