Fiction in Thailand
Writing a Fiction Thai is not as hard as you may think. The Thai language has similarities to many languages and writing a fiction Thai doesn’t have to be any different than writing in any other language. In fact it is actually easier to write a story in Thai that in any other language. As long as you have the basic skills, you can start writing a story in Thai right away. Let’s take a look at some tips on how to get started writing your novel.
The first thing that you need to do is write out a story in Thai. This is easier than it sounds. All you have to do is use the computer and type in the words from the Thai language into a Google document. You can then expand on the sentences and add more detail as you go along.
Next it’s time to draw a Thai version of yourself or someone that you know. There are a lot of free tools available online. You can even do this right from your home! Just put in a photo and it will morph into an avatar that you can customize with hair, clothing, and facial features. This avatar will then be used in a variety of ways throughout your story.
The next step is to choose the type of Thailand that you would like to write about. Thailand is so diverse, it’s easy to create a story about almost anything. Explore the history of Thailand through their history books and you’ll find lots of great stories and characters. Take a look at a few of Thailand’s most popular works and see what kind of places and people you like the best. When writing a fiction Thai book, it helps to write from the character’s point of view.
After you’ve done this, it’s time to set the scene. You can pick a specific location such as a beach, a city, or even a quiet country village. The setting is very important as this will give your readers clues as to what they should expect to see within the story. Remember the less elaborate the scene, the better!
Next up, think about the characters you have chosen. Make sure that they are unique and interesting enough to make your storyteller and reader care about them. However, you do want them to be realistic in their own emotions as well. Too many writers try to write about emotions they have not felt, as this often leads to an unrealistic outcome.
One of the best parts of writing fiction in Thailand is that you don’t need any type of visa to stay there. Simply get a work permit and you’re in the country. This allows you to visit any tourist attractions that you would like while still keeping your record clean. Plus, being in another country means having to use a different method to communicate back home.
Finally, choose your characters wisely. Try to choose people who will be interesting to read. Choose a main character, but also include secondary and minor characters. Finally, make sure that you write about a plot that doesn’t go stale. After all, a compelling story is something that keeps the reader hooked until the end!
Also, make sure that you stay away from using Thai swear words. Even if your translators can’t translate them for you, they should be able to edit them for you correctly. If your story does have swear words, use sparingly and only in moderation.
You may also want to consider writing fiction in Thai just for fun. You never know when you’ll hit on a gem of a story! As with any writing experience, it is best to start with short stories. While the short fiction is easier, it can also be more difficult to work into your schedule.
Remember, when writing fiction in Thailand, you are free to be creative and do things you’d never think of doing in the United States or Canada. Also, keep the quality of the story in mind as well. It’s always best to publish your work by a publisher, but sometimes you can sell it yourself on online services such as CreateSpace.
