The Nobel Prize winning authors are sure to know much about writing. Their advice must be of invaluable use for everyone who wants to make writing a career.
1. Make sur height: 413px;e the language you use is not dead
1993 Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison gives a good definition of a dead language as a one that makes the intellect thwarted and human potential suppressed. Morrison’s suggestion is to write about true things which really matter to a writer.
2. Writing on abstract topics using specific images
A relevant word of advice is given by 1996 Prize winner Wislawa Szymborska. If you consider writing about some outstanding themes connected with history, transform them into a particular story narrowed to particular events. Describe abstract notions through particular characters’ actions providing readers with a vivid picture of the scene.
3. Being unable to write, invent a story in your mind
A famous Canadian short story writer Alice Munro shares her writing experience in terms of working out the plots and developing characters in her head. A good idea is to use a voice recorder or any other suitable device to record some thoughts, ideas, or even words when they happen to come to your mind.
4. Enlarge your scope by reading, but do not overuse the ideas of others
Wole Soyinka, a Nigerian author, emphasizes the importance of reading for boosting the writing skills.
It is the generally accepted truth that to write well you must read a lot as reading enriches your language and broadens your mind. However, make sure your writing is not a compilation of borrowed ideas.
5. Create believable stories
Gabriel Garcia Marquez made a genius remark about the author having the right to write about whatever he wants as long the readers believe it.
Regardless the genre of a book, make sure the characters are not two-dimensional. All the plot twists, the motives or conflicts must be realistic to make your writing believable.
6. Don’t make your writing “end-oriented”
The best advice in this respect was given by John Steinbeck who advised to write as if you were never going to finish.
Instead of thinking about the thrill of the story ending, concentrate on the process itself. Write a page today, then one tomorrow. If you continue like this, you will find yourself writing more and better.
7. Make writing your everyday routine
Mario Vargas Llosa, the Peruvian Nobel Prize winner, advises on generating ideas for writing. He says that inspiration arises from writing on a regular basis.
Write according to a schedule and do your best to avoid skipping writing hours. A well-developed habit of writing will ensure continuous generation of new ideas.
8. Ensure connection with readers
The writer – reader relationships were best described by Saul Bellow who won the Prize in 1976. He described a kind of intimacy between these two as the bookworm feels what the author and his characters feel as well.
