3 Gerunds That Change Literature
Our tagline here at BYCT is Entertaining. Uplifting. Inspiring. When we think of great novels these words must ring true. Think back to the first time you realized you loved to read. Even to those who maybe don’t love reading but have that one book that was the exception that took you out of this world… Why? What made that book great? Well we believe any book must have all three of these qualities to be great and that is why it is our tagline.
This one is a no brainer. Of course a book needs to be entertaining! But, we included it into our motto because raise your hand if you’ve ever that book you could just never get quite into… Okay so we all raised our hands. How as an author can we make sure to keep our readers entertained and how as readers can we choose novels best to entertain our personalities? As a reader, when choosing a novel, know your preference… If your preference is normally fantasy romance then a historical biography might not be up your ally. But, don’t forget to read outside your comfort zone because you might fall in love with more than one type! Okay now, to authors… Keep your books entertaining by sticking to the genre; develop interesting and relate-able characters; and understanding your audience.
Why is this characteristic so important to us? Novels that leave you feeling uplifted, have long lasting impacts in our lives. With so many bad things going on in the world today that we like to highlight all the good still left in the world. Does that mean all our books are rainbows and roses? No. Our books and the characters within still go through challenges and experience real life hardships. However, we want our readers to feel uplifted and wanting more after reading a book from our site.
Books that inspire us are the reason people read. How many times have we read a book about an amazing story that just flat out inspires us to doing something we would never think to do before? Or maybe just give us the extra push to do something we’ve been thinking about for a while? Great books inspire people. Period. No matter the genre or the plot if it’s a great book, it has to inspire someone.
