What you need to remember is that your book design is not “less” published if it is published digitally. Not only will it be stressful, it probably won’t give you the best results. Acted as commercial manager at Xeriph Distribuidora Digital and as coordinator of digital content at publisher Zahar. The commercial calls for everyone’s breath. However, with diversity, there is also difficulty: we have many more products to organize and show. But the cold digital world also has people. The problem with this is that real people aren’t perfect, so characters shouldn’t be either. Try to list any health-related issues your character may have. Allergies, respiratory problems, psychological or cognitive disorders, tumors, cysts, sexually transmitted diseases. Any writing style is valid too. It’s a matter of style too. One way or another, it is essential to leave certain clues that point to reality. What matters is not whether reality is good and illusion is bad or vice versa, but that they are distinct, well characterized, that each one has its function in the narrative and that there are clues connecting these “two worlds”. Eg: the school is an authoritarian educational institution; the setting presents clues to a murder; the time and place where the story takes place makes the characters participate in a huge historical event, like a revolution.
Going further, the setting can also offer clues to solving the puzzle in a mystery book. As we’ve talked about before, the “school” scenario can be set in many different ways. For example, “school” is a valid setting for both romance and horror stories. Your process should be the one that best suits your needs, but if you are facing difficulties or simply want to learn new techniques, have you already tried to get out of your comfort zone and explore the world of possibilities that is the creation of stories? It’s common to root for the protagonists in horror stories. For a change, you can create a story in which a character believed she was experiencing a huge horror, only to discover that it was just a prank in the end. Therefore, find out if publishing this story would lead to legal problems in the first place. A good technique is to mark any questionable words in red, and if you think of more than one different possibility, include both options to decide later.
As you can see, this much underrated narrative element plays a key role in building a good story. The context is responsible for explaining several characteristics of the characters, for ensuring that the plot is believable and even for the reader’s immersion in the story. A last consideration, but of paramount importance, is whether you intend to immediately expose things as they are in the narrative, or if you intend to convey a false idea to the audience and/or characters, which is gradually unmasked. The unfolding of a story, as well as the characters’ lives, can change drastically depending on these factors. In both cases, it is not necessary to make phonetic marks to indicate the way each letter is pronounced according to the character’s accent. How ridiculous, that doesn’t exist! Alternatively, offer readers victories that don’t feel so much like victories. XIX is not going to be like a São Paulo in the XXI century. This is what we call personalization – and it can be used in the site environment, in emails, push messages and wherever else the world allows.
Got any other ideas out of the box to write more? There will be many days when you find yourself looking at a blank sheet, without a clue. Sometimes we fall for it when we feel that everything we write needs to be grand, a complete idea and relevant to all of humanity. Analyze your possibilities, see how each idea works. Let your wings go and improve every bit of your book, like the true perfectionist in you! Writing is writing. And any letter on paper has its value. A diary can be anything, actually. In a way, this scale can also be understood as a “level of estrangement”. This combination, from man to machine, makes the experience of the new bookseller extremely complex and interesting, in addition to always evolving with the arrival of new trends and technologies. Another interesting phenomenon is the emergence of literature inspired by this new scenario. How will this relationship develop from one point to another?
