Writing Fiction in Thai
Writing a Fiction Thai may be one of the more difficult genres to tackle. Thailand is a fascinating and diverse place with lots of things to see and places to visit. The language, Thai, is widely spoken in the country so there is plenty of scope for using Thai as the language of the novel. However, it can be quite a daunting task to keep the story straight.
Firstly you must decide on a basic synopsis for your story. This will give the essential information to the reader about the main character, their environment, the conflict, the climax and the resolution. You will need to work out how many characters there will be, what will be their relationships and how they will interact with the other characters. You could even consider including a short note at the end of each chapter to confirm whether or not there is still a lot left to be worked out. All these details are vital to the success of your book.
Once you have a clear story in mind, you should start writing. It’s always best to start with short stories and see how you do. There are many quality books available in libraries that have stories already written in them so you will be getting a lot from those books and therefore a guide to writing your own novel. You can also use some of the freely available stories on websites such as Storylance and Elance to give you an idea about how a story should be written.
Another good idea is to watch a movie or two – preferably with English subtitles. This will not only show you how an English story is written but you will be able to see the basics of how someone might write a story. Use a pen and paper to write down whatever ideas come to you. A few sentences here and there will form the basis of your story. Once you have a basic idea of how you want your novel to unfold, you will find that writing will become much easier.
After writing down your story idea, it’s time to create a storyboard. A storyboard is simply a tool that helps you organize and describe your story. Storyboards are similar to sketching out a scene in a movie. They will usually consist of a large piece of paper, cards, or a computer desktop. Each item is used to describe and draw a scene in the storyboard.
Once you have a storyboard finished, it’s time to write the actual book. The first draft of your book is called a manuscript. To get your book written, you will need to go back and edit your storyboard and your manuscript. Any changes or additions that you make will be written down in the manuscript. Once you have all of the changes that you wish to make, you will submit your manuscript to a publisher.
Writing fiction in Thai can be difficult for someone who hasn’t written anything like this before. The books are difficult and oftentimes intricate. They often deal with religion and symbolism very deeply. If you aren’t familiar with some of these terms, then it may be a good idea to spend some time finding a writer who can provide you with feedback and help you develop your characters and plotlines.
Fiction Thai does have some restrictions when it comes to authors. The first of which is that you must live in Thailand. This means you will need to register and receive licensing to sell your books in the country. Many aspiring authors find this requirement to be too strict. If this sounds like an overwhelming task, then consider hiring a ghostwriter to write your books for you.
