Becoming an author is not difficult these days. Internet has provided unlimited amount of space and avenues to share thoughts and ideas. Even if one does not find a publisher to get the book published and printed as a hard copy, one can easily find fame through the internet writing and later turn to publishing. But the question is not just how to be an author? It's about becoming a good author, a noticeable writer.

It is easy to become a writer if one wishes to write about a particular topic like those of sciences, sociology, history etc. as any work in a particular category is always more likely to attract attention than a general work of literature. Given the fact that people are able to devote lesser time to reading these days owing to the hectic schedules and the options of passive entertainment available cheaply, it is a challenging to task to write something captivating and unique.

The talent of the writer is not just in her or his ability to think uniquely but also to present the thoughts precisely and more importantly, interestingly. Language is one of the areas where one can work to when one asks oneself how to be a book writer? What is meant by this suggestion is to go through a few writers of the same subject and genre and analyze the use of language. This will create a very good picture about the art of book writing.

Another important aspect is the social aspect. A book is a bridge between the consciousness of the people and the mind of the writer. If one end of the bridge is not held tightly, the bridge would not be built at all o will collapse very soon. A writer's genius lies in looking through the eyes of the reader and then exchanging the position to present in an attractive way what is being expected.

Many people are left thinking about these details for too long and end up leaving the project. The best way to begin is by writing. Do not think too much. Start writing as soon as the idea flashes and have courage to burn your own drafts and improvise. Many people also like to work in a well planned and structured manner where they prepare the summary of every part of the book before going into the details.
