An author uses their natural gifts with language to entertain, inform and persuade readers with their words. In the future an author will need to adapt to the changing needs of technological readers by publishing different digital media and altering their writing style to fit busy readers needs. Some authors write education books such as textbooks, but others are stories. Some authors are assigned to write about a certain topic by a company or publisher.
While many others will write
stories from pure imagination or
experience. These who simply
write stories will send
stories to publishers,
generally the first three
chapters, and attempt to
get them published.
Many authors will work at home in a study or private room, given that writing needs solitude. But there are also many authors who enjoy to travel. The place they usually travel to is where ever their book takes place. Some may even live where their book takes place to get a better understanding of their character’s view.
When authors write they will jot their notes down in a notebook. Some even will write most of their book in a notebook. But the most convenient and commonly used tool for an author is a computer. They use the computer to contact publishers and write their book down.
The case with many authors is that they will have had a love for reading when they were young and still enjoy it today. It is an important skill to enjoy and read many books as this will give you an idea of the format that many books have. One thing important for story writing authors to have is imagination. This
allows authors to think
of interesting and original
ideas that people will buy.
But the most important skill
an author can have is a good
idea of grammar and sentence structure.
In the future an author will need to adapt to the changing needs of technological readers by publishing different digital media and altering their writing style to fit busy readers needs. The job will have new technology needs. Authors will write books using new and easier electronic equipment.
Someone wishing to become an author may require a bit more teaching in the future than before. Some classes they might take are; how to type, journalism, English and as the such. Authors will need to have some good experience with computers for the future.
This job’s changes are minimal. Technology will affect this job slightly. Authors will simply have to learn about how to use future technology.
Not to mention you will need to be
able to publish books in electronic form.
This jobs changes will be minimal, except for the technology changes. Authors will simply need to know the basics of technology. Authors will need a bit more schooling than before but will otherwise be able to keep up with technology.
