Writing Fiction in Thailand
Many of us have wanted to be writers but have never given any thought to writing fiction. While fiction is not an exact science, most writers can at least appreciate the basic premise. For example: A boy grows up in the big city with the loud music, the car racing down the boulevards, and the girls who chase men. One day he realizes that life is not so cut and dry. While we all know this story, we have all lived in our own reality.
Fiction Thai, as it is known, is a relatively recent innovation. The term ‘fiction Thai’ is a combination of two words that simply mean ‘dream’. A number of years ago, a number of foreign authors came to Thailand with the intention of doing something new and exciting. One of these writers was Michael Chabon. Michael and his group of like-minded travelers made up a new name for themselves – ‘Fiction Thai’.
A large majority of the Thai population are simple, down-to-earth people who live a simple lifestyle. Their culture is reflected in their everyday life. A story often reflects a moment in time, an event or a scene. Sometimes it is a character who will draw the reader into the story and then entice them to continue reading. Writing about Thai life is no different to writing about any other culture.
Stories are divided into chapters. A chapter is basically just a short story about a specific incident. The number of chapters in each book is usually limited. Each chapter is usually written in between two to four hours. A typical Fiction Thai book may have up to fifty chapters.
When you have finished writing your novel, you need to edit the work. Only after the story has been thoroughly edited, do you submit it for publication. It is important to have excellent writing skills. This is what is needed to ensure that your story does not fail to get published.
Fiction Thai can be written about many events that could happen in Thailand. For example, you could write a story about a young boy who becomes obsessed with the mystical powers of an animal. If you choose to write a novel or story about animals, you should choose one that has some basis in reality. You can find lots of material on the internet on animal stories.
There are many books that can help novice writers to learn the basics of writing fiction. However, there are many more books and courses available. No matter which route you take, you should practice and write every day. A writer’s block can occur at any time. But being persistent with your work can overcome such blocks. By constantly writing, you will improve your skills and get to the stage where you can relax and sit back and let the story develop around the idea that you are giving it to tell.
Fiction Thai is widely available. There are several websites on the internet that specialize in writing fiction. Many beginners find that their initial success stems from their search for a suitable website. It is important to look at all the various sites and find one that suits your needs. Before choosing a particular site, consider the reviews left by other users and see what kind of experience they have had.
Stories written about Thailand and its people attract many readers. As the country is such a popular destination, tourists are constantly looking for entertaining and informative content. You can therefore find yourself in demand. The stories you write can portray the lives of Thailand’s people better than any other medium.
Writing stories can be both a pleasurable and profitable pastime. When done well, they can instill a great deal of sentiment and bring a lot of joy to those who read them. Fiction Thai can give you a leg up on your writing by giving you guidance on how to structure the story. This will make the story far more interesting to the reader.
In conclusion, if you really want to try writing fiction, why not give it a go? There is no reason why you cannot be a successful novelist, just as there is no reason why you cannot succeed as a screenwriter. Give it a shot!
