Yet, it becomes difficult for several writers to engage and hold the readers to the last page. What do you think, why, and where are they lacking in the process of creating a masterpiece? 

Well, the reason could be anything, but I’m here to let you know about a few points that can be of great help to you while writing a book. Also, this may even result in a high engagement of the readers to your book. So, let’s get to the core part; 

Why to engage your readers?

Books are a source of education and learning, but most significantly, they need to be entertaining. If a book doesn’t make you feel relatable or you don’t find it interesting, and ends up keeping it aside without reading it, we waste all the lessons and teachings of the book.  

You need to keep a balance between all the aspects that make your book a good and must-read. But how?  

Well, the structure of the story is what helps in making a book interesting. Now, the structure of the story is not only about what to write but also contributes a major part to how to write. You need to figure out the several facts that are responsible for helping your book or story to reach a successful height in the industry.  

Let’s now find these factors below; 

Essential and Effective tips to engage the readers 

Without taking much of the lines, let me get straight to the topic.  

1.One Idea is a Big Idea

People might think that heading a story on a single track and coming up with the climax is monotonous. But it is not. Have you ever heard of a story that creates too much drama with a storyline having different branches in different directions? Don’t you think at a certain point it creates chaos in your head and you end up either quitting the story or simply don’t understand? Well, these are kind of blunt stories that forget to focus on the main storyline just to take it in multiple directions.  

So, you first need to think of the main story and build a story around it. It is obvious to talk about other characters too and mention their roles, but overdoing can cause less engagement of the readers.  

2.The first impression is the last 

Yes, the first impression is the last. We have all heard of this phrase, and we even abide by it when we meet someone for the first time. Similarly, writing too leaves a significant impact on your mind. The very first lines say a lot about your writing style, tone, vocabulary, and how well you can take the story ahead to the conclusion.  

So, make sure to leave an everlasting impact on your reader’s mind and write a wonderful opening line. This is all it takes to be an interesting writer.  

3.Play with the reader’s mind 

One of the interesting traits of the reader is that when a reader reads, he is visualizing the words in his mind. So, here you need to be very careful with the words you choose to frame a sentence because you think that a reader is reading, but he is living the story. You need to play with the words in a way that the reader feels overwhelmed with each of your words and skips keeping the book down until he finishes it.  

4.Don’t complicate the word or sentences 

A few beginner writers think that structuring a book is all about using fancy terminologies and sentences that need little effort to understand. It is not the reality. Using fancy words and sentences having psychological meanings behind them is not always good. Readers are comfortable with books using simple and easy-to-understand language. They don’t need any drama in the words to pop up and disturb their concentration. If you do so, you are just letting your engagement analytics down.  

Try using simple yet elegant words that leave a great message.  

5.Be Confident with the emotional outline 

Emotions are something that every author is trying to convey through words, and every reader connects with a story based on emotional balances. Remember to show all the forms of it in different phases of the story. If you are portraying a dull phase, you need to show the light ahead in the story to balance it out. You even need to work on the high points of the emotions where you need to put the characters into the stress.  

Anger, frustration, sadness, joy, and even more of them, you need to show all of them in the right proportion to make your book and story a big hit.  

6.Highs and Lows  

While framing a story, analyze the entire path critically. Think twice of the highs and lows of the story as the most crucial part. The height should not be so high that it doesn’t feel real. Similarly, a law should not be so low that it loses the attention of the reader. Think of the twist and place it in the right position of your story. Begin your story from there energetically where people think that everything has gone all wrong. This structure will revive the hopes of the readers in the characters and will inspire them to the reader further.  

These were a few of the vital tips that can be essential to you to write your story interestingly and gain a lot of engagement out of it. So, whether you are starting or have started to write a book, follow the above-mentioned instructions and be true to your story and writing.
