What to write now: How to write what people want to read
At some point in the writing life, you will write a book that is filled with great characters, sizzling plot, and wonderful setting details. A book that you are proud of and put a lot of yourself into. You write it, edit it, and publish it. But you realize that no matter how much care you took, it isn’t getting read. Don’t fear. This is a common issue.
Every day many books are being published but only a small number of them ever get read.
What is it that makes someone want to read a book, well, not only any book, but YOURS?
How do you write what people want to read?
Number one, straight off is that you have to write something entertaining, You have to either have humor, action, romance, or a story that is so deep and dark, a reader cannot say no to it. For example, try this book:
But even still, this won’t always bring readers.
Why? Because you did something that messed up your shot. One little item that every new writer makes.
YOU WROTE THE BOOK FOR YOURSELF WITHOUT A READER IN MIND
Now, I know, you have heard it over and over, write what you know. If you build it, they will come. Etc. etc. etc. And I believe those things are true to a point. But a reader needs more than just your writing about something you are familiar with. They want different. They want new. In other words, they want what they want, not what you want to write.
So, how on earth do I know what book to write, what genre to write in?
