Rules for writing a good novel 2022

I’ve never written a novel, but I’ve read a lot of them in many genres. Based on my experiences reading a variety of novels, I understand that writing a good story is not easy. It needs a lot of effort, practice writing, reading other people’s work, a lot of imagination, and constructive critique. So, based on my many reading experiences, I’ve come up with a list of guidelines that authors should follow in order to make their novels stand out and get accepted.

Figure out what genre you want to write in

  • What is a genre, why should you consider it?

Genre is a way to classify literature according to style, form, content, or intended audience. For example, the novel is a genre of literature with many sub-genres such as mystery and romance. It is worthwhile for writers and readers to pay attention to the genre they like because it helps them make informed decisions about what they want to read.

Writing in your favorite genre allows you to easily connect with the story and organize it smoothly. It’s not only easier for you to create, but also allows you to enjoy the writing more because it’s easier for you to stay engaged. There are many benefits of writing in your favorite genre, whether it be romance or sci-fi, so if you’re having trouble with a story, try switching up the genre!

Fantasy is, in my opinion, one of the most popular genres. Fantasy opens up new possibilities and concepts that other genres may not, allowing me to be more creative and create my own world without having to worry about the real world. 

  • Current trends: What is popular right now?

Some people say they want to be entertained. Others say they want to read about something different than what is happening in their lives. No matter where you lie on the spectrum of readers, there is a novel for you this year. 

What type of book is popular now? Romance! It has been sitting at the top of best-seller lists for months now. This trend is not new, though. Other popular genres include thriller novels, psychological thrillers, and mystery novels.

Choosing popular genres is simple; the difficult part is writing in genres that will draw people into your world. Following the reader’s trends will prevent you from being creative, and you may not fully comprehend the story. If you don’t like technology but want to write a novel about it, consider how you’ll develop the protagonists, setting, and conclusion of the story.

  • Try out different genres

Everyone has their own tastes in literature, but sometimes it is hard to find your niche in among the countless genres. If you are writing a novel, try out different genres you would like to explore and see how they go over with an audience. 

Fiction novels can range from mystery to romance, but what if you’re looking for a more unusual genre? First of all, keep in mind that not everything falls into a set category.

Even while sticking to one genre is helpful for your writing, experimenting with other genres will help you develop your writing and get closer to the niche you prefer. Writing in as many genres as you like improves your writing skills and allows you to acquire fresh techniques from different dimensions of styles.

  • Take advice from others: What advice do they have for genre exploration?

If you’re reading this, you’re probably feeling frustrated with how your writing is not coming out the way that you want. You just can’t seem to get outside of your comfort zone to create something new and exciting. But don’t worry! There are plenty of other creatives who have been there, done that, and are willing to share their advice for getting started in uncharted territory or an unfamiliar genre.

Many people find themselves stuck in the same genre for months, even years. They may not be sure what genre they like best, or maybe they haven’t looked around enough to know their options. It’s hard to make a decision when there are so many books out there! However, if you’re looking for something new and different, take advice from others about what genres they enjoy.

Create a character that will be the protagonist of the story

We have all seen the hero, or protagonist, in a movie that has overcome insurmountable odds to save an entire group of people.

Consider the following factors when creating good protagonists: name, personality type, life stories, roles, and appearances. Identifying the protagonists’ personalities and characteristics will aid in the development of their worth, roles, and uniqueness.

Figure out the setting of your novel, as well as all other creatures and people in your world

When we write a novel we need to be sure we know the setting and all other creatures and people in our world. This will help with understanding how everything interacts and what is happening. If we don’t know these things it will only confuse and frustrate our readers and make them put down the book unfinished or give up on reading altogether.

Create a timeline for your story, including major events and turning points the protagonist is going to face

A timeline can help you organize your story, make it easier to understand, and provide a more satisfying reading experience. A timeline can also be used to create suspense by leaving some important events off the page. There are many ways to use a timeline in your novel or short story. You might want to break up your work into segments of time that correspond with the different stages of your protagonist’s life.

As a writer, you have the opportunity to construct a timeline for your character’s story. This will help map out major events in the protagonist’s life and how they are going to experience turning points that are pivotal to their development. You may be tempted to include all of these details in your story, but it is wise to limit the number of significant events that are chronicled.
