The internet community has embraced many types of writing platforms and fiction is a genre that has also translated to the blogosphere. A fiction blog is a blog series that often follows the same character and theme, and is a lot similar to an e-book. Similar to writing non-fiction, fiction blogging requires the use of the same mechanics of writing such as establishing a character, plot, and a setting.
Establishing the perfect character you want to present to the world is the first and most important task in writing. Establish the gender, race, and personality of the character. Is the character mentally ill or has trust issues? These particular aspects of the character building process are all important for all characters involved in the story.
A fiction blog highlights the character's personalities and back stories to serve as a reference for the audience. Some fiction blogs create a "characters" page and dedicate a post to each character. In order to utilize this function you must install a plugin to a Word Press self-hosted website.
Creating your characters provides an insight into the story line. Ask yourself what is this character trying to achieve and why? Each character can be taken through this thought process after the lead character's plot has been formed. Establishing how these characters will interact with each other during the process of achieving the final goal can be quite difficult if the writer does not consider these steps.
There are advantages of fiction blogging. The characters remain the same, but the plot of the story does not have to remain static. As long as the writer wants to continue a story on a fiction blog, the plots are flexible.
Depending on your characters and the plot of your story, establishing the world of your story has to be realistic. If you are writing about wealthy characters, the writer must create a world for the wealthy. Usually defining the setting of a story is pretty simple after you have thoroughly defined your characters and plot.
The challenge of the fiction blog is choosing a distraction-free theme for the blog's appearance. Some audiences are drawn by colorful graphics and others by a reader-friendly theme. It is the writer's responsibility to reach out to audiences to understand their preferences.
Summarily, creative writers will enjoy the process of creating their own world of characters and sharing their stories on a regular schedule.
