Writing Fiction in Thai
Fiction Thai writing is not as difficult as it may seem. In fact, it can be quite easy and quick to write. It does, however, require some technical know how. Fiction Thai books should be written in a conversational way and Thai phrases are often involved. That is to be expected of course, and the translator needs to make sure not to slip in too many random and unrelated words.
Fiction Thai writing is not difficult but it is not for everyone. If you are used to writing in English, or are of Asian decent, there really is no need to learn this language. It will read well, but it is not necessary. If however you have been living in a non-Asian country for a number of years, especially one with a predominantly Muslim population, reading this language might be a bit of a problem.
Fiction Thai books are written in the Thai language so it is imperative that you have some idea of the dialect. If you can grasp the basic gist of the speech, it should not be much of a problem. On the other hand, if you find that you are simply unable to grasp the language at all, you will want to purchase books specifically written in Thailand. This is because the characters will have their own vocabulary and will address different words and situations. This is not the same as other languages.
Fiction Thai writing requires that you give it a realistic description of events within the book. This does not mean that you have to rewrite the events. Rather, you need to make sure that they are accurately stated. This is important because a story is not just words on a page. You have to take time to develop the characters and build conflict. Readers want to know that the writer took the time to do the job right.
Fiction Thai writing also requires that you give a good description of the setting. You cannot simply tell the story of a bungalow in Bangkok and call it your book. It needs to be set in a real place. This means that you need to learn the culture and how life really goes down in this part of the world. Take the time to really figure out what is going on in the characters’ world and you will be able to write more original stories.
Fiction Thai writing also needs you to be imaginative. While you do not have to be the next George R.R. Martin, you do need to come up with creative plots that will keep the readers turning the next page. The trick is not to turn the story into a romance, but to make it fun and realistic.
Fiction Thai writing also demands that you make sure that there are a lot of twists in the tale. While having a story with lots of twists is great, it can sometimes be boring. That is why you need to make sure that you write a few alternate versions of the story that you have in mind before you write the real thing. Each version of the story should be completely different from the other. This way you will be able to make your story as unique and interesting as you possibly can.
Fiction Thai stories need to be written in a manner that is easy to understand. When you are done writing the story, try reading the same thing over again. That way you will be able to catch all the little details that no one has mentioned yet. When you do that you can start rereading your story and get excited about it once more.
