Every writer wants to write a good novel, but don’t assume all writer knows the key that may make the difference between a successful novel and a failure. The trick that each writer needs to learn is that each novel is a mystery. I am aware which may sound ridiculous initially, especially when you’re writing a romance or a technology fiction novel. At their core, though, even westerns and horror stories are mysteries.

Allow me to explain what I mean. When I say that each novel is a secret, I mean that there surely is something (a mystery) that the main นิยาย character must figure out throughout the story. In a murder mystery, that is pretty obvious. The main character must figure out who committed the murder. This seek out the murderer then supplies the framework around that your remaining portion of the story is structured. In a romance, the protagonist may need to figure out how to have the person she wants to fall deeply in love with her. In a technology fiction novel, the main character may need to figure out how to have back home after his spaceship crashes on a strange planet. In each one of these cases, solving the mystery in the story supplies the framework.

This mystery can’t just be a passing comment in the story. It must function as bones of the story. Therefore, the initial step in writing your novel is to determine what mystery most of your character will probably solve.

First, answer these questions. What is my character’s main task throughout the story? What does he or she need to learn?

Next, give most of your character a seriously compelling basis for completing their task. Let’s use our previous science fiction novel as an example. Our main character must figure out how to have back home while he really wants to witness the birth of his first child. Maybe he’s carrying a vaccine that may cure an epidemic on his home planet. Maybe he only has three days of breathable air. Maybe he has a message that must be delivered to the president in order to prevent war. The more dire the effects, the higher the story will be. The set of possibilities is endless.

You will see how important the word “because” is when you’re writing your novel’s statement. It can turn advisable for a story in to a great idea. Try applying this format for your novel’s mystery sentence: The main character must (write the issue here) because (write a compelling reason here).

You should use this mystery statement included in your marketing material once the novel is finished. It can can be found in your press release and in your online advertising.

If you’ve already written a story, check to see if you’re able to write a secret statement. If not, there’s a good chance your novel lacks focus. I’ve seen some pretty decent writers spend a lot of time writing very mediocre books which sold only some copies since they ignored this simple secret.
