The Power of Storytelling
If you’re thinking about writing a nonfiction Book, it’s vital you keep in mind writing practices common to writing fiction, such as telling a story. Crafting a story makes it easier for you to connect with your audience and keep them reading from cover to cover.
A Human Connection
By taking steps to tell a story with your KDP nonfiction book, you can fully engage readers and keep them hooked on every word. One great way to do this is to include relatable characters in your story, ones readers can empathize with (not just sympathize with).
Another reason to craft stories into your nonfiction work is so it becomes easily memorable. You don’t want readers to feel as if they’re in school learning a lesson, which can make them put the book down or switch to an activity that better grabs their attention. By threading a story through your book, your material and whatever message you have to share is that much easier to take in and digest.
One thing to bear in mind is that contextual details help fortify your story and imprint it deeply in the reader’s mind. Such details help craft the world you are creating around the subject of your book.
