Why a Fiction Author Should Increase their Vocabulary

There is a vocabulary that fiction authors use regularly. There are other vocabulary one can learn so that you always have words that you can choose from when writing. To make the writing more appealing, a fiction writer should use verbs, nouns, modifiers and adjectives when writing. Good writing is not only how well you put the words together, it is also about the words themselves. It is easy to get into a novel that is engaging when you read it. Reread the novel again after reading and enjoying it. Examining how the work is written is the goal. How the plot and characters were developed as well as the technical aspects such as grammar are some of the things you should be mindful of. Be mindful of the fact that American and British authors write differently.

The authors differ in the use of words, spelling and punctuation. While Americans use among, the British use the word amongst. Writing for either the American readers or British readers each have their standard of rules that you should stick to.

Expanding the base of the vocabulary fiction authors know is important and it is possible to do. This can be done anytime when they are reading another author’s work. Noting down any new vocabulary that you come across is very important. This seems to be general knowledge, but most authors do not usually do this. Besides it being a logical thing to do, it is one way of building your vocabulary. Another thing to do is to get a notebook or any other system that you desire, and make categories that suit your needs. Anytime people are talking or when there is a dialogue on the TV or when you are reading, you should concentrate and listen keenly. Take note of the verbs, nouns, modifiers and adjectives or any compound nouns that are being used. There are words that you already use, the ones that you did not know and those you never thought of using, you will discover either if this. It is also great to keep a list of words or phrases that your characters might occasionally use. Use a phrase like ‘her eyes surveyed the room ‘ when describing the action of the eye.

When you take note of such words or phrases, you are able to be creative enough to vividly describe what is going on internally and externally concerning your characters. Such a list will help you rephrase your words and write authentic and creative vocabulary. When making the first draft use this list.
