How to Write a Great Book


There are certain elements and aspects that go into writing a great book. Of course, all writers are going to utilise and adapt these elements in varying ways. It's a matter of knowing and understanding the aspects, and then executing them in a personalised and customised way.

Here are a few tips on how to write a great book... 



Strong opening

You need a strong opening to be able to engage your readers straight away. You need to grab their attention as soon as you can; without grabbing their immediate attention they may lose interest quickly.


Strong rhythm

A strong rhythm will allow your book to flow. A good book will flow easily, meaning readers can follow the book and its rhythm simply.


Strong structure

Your book needs to have a strong structure. It needs to be clear and explicit. Without a strong structure, your book has the potential to feel weak and clumsy.


Strong characters

Be sure to fully develop your characters, both mentally and physically. You need each character to give off a strong personality and add effect to your book.


A great book is not just written, it's thought about and nurtured


Strong setting/s

A strong setting will allow readers to feel connected with your book and grab their attention. Making the setting engaging and exciting will ensure the readers do not lose interest.


Strong conclusion

A book without a strong conclusion can seem disappointing. Your book needs to have a satisfying and strong conclusion that both entertains the reader and makes sense.


Make writing a daily activity

Writing daily will keep you in a routine and keep your mind focussed solely on your book. This will ensure you will stay engaged when it comes to writing.


Avoid overwriting or underwriting

Often, it can be easy to overwrite or underwrite. Try to avoid this and only write what is necessary. Including unnecessary elements could potentially lead to your readers losing interest.



Maintain your own originality. Be individualistic and harbour your own voice. Make your book something different for people to read.


Now you know how to write a great book! Or, at least the basics and essentials that go into writing a great book. Knowing these will help you to develop your writing and take it to the next step, ensuring your book is the best it can be.
