Often times, the writers are burdened with the worries of what to give the readers, what they want, their taste; is it romance, horror, fantasy or the African spiced literature that tells a story about the history and the prestige of the African countries, this sometimes, is hard for the writers to decipher

However, below we'll emphasize on what writers should look out for  and how expertly they ild be able to analyse the minds and the taste of their readers, hence, there's no magic thereafter ,just persistent reviews of the thoughts of the readers on their works.

But before we go further, it's mandatory we specifically emphasize on the fact that every writers have their own style of writing and that's the uniqueness that differentiate then from other writers when the readers sight their works. They say 'waoh! I know someone who writes just like this'. Shakespeare had his style, so does Stephen Kings and JK Rowling's is not left out of the circles and other various prestigious writers.
The streamline of what differentiate the readers from the writers is the ability of the writers to pen down their imaginations, thoughts, experiences of both the readers and the writers down. The ability to create stories out of mere experiences. The ability to recreate history in black and white, the ability to expand the humans imaginations.Thus, the streamline bridge. The essence of writers cannot be overemphasized, going back in history, writers were able agitate the minds of the people to reboot against their readers, they were able to give hope, they were able to give deep insight of what life is all about, they were able to create dreams in the midst of nightmares. But that's no the essence of this article but rather the streamline bridge between the writers and the readers.

Firstly, what do you think the readers want?— what age ranks are the story meant to be directed to? do you think a story that's supposed to be read to or read by children are to be filled with horrific characters and stories? Do you think parents would want to have them read it? Do you think you'd even sell more copies of your works? Also, do you think American characters like lykans, vampires would pretty much appreciated in the African society compared to gods and supernatural characters like Ogun, Sango, Oya etc.? Hence, the importance of making critical research on what the writers wants and expects a writer to provide.

Secondly, genre- fantasy, horror, comedy, sci-fiction,Romance, adventure etc. Which one do you think your readers would go for? Would a young boy rather appreciate fantasy than horror? Often times, this is quite difficult to evaluate as most times readers might go for sometimes beyonds the writers expectations. So, what would the writers do to solve this problem? A codification of all these genres wouldn't really make a story exquisite. Hence, the solution is to try and delve deeply into one genre while tapping momentarily from the others once in a while. For instance, a horror story should at least have a comic relief so as to get the readers relaxed. Take IT, chapter 1 for instance, despite how horrific the story was about a couple of kids who had to fight off their fears of defeating a demonic clown, Stephen Kings tends to input some comedy into it in order not to get the readers to be momentarily agitated. Also, what would adventure be like without a little fantasy? Stuffs like this makes it much easier for the readers to be carried along with the story and not to get them easily bored or uninterested.

Thirdly, characters- who are your characters? What are their personality? What unique trait do they possess? Do you initially introduce a character to be romantic but the story does not actually portray him to be? - not taking this into consideration vehemently bore the readers, confused and often times uninterested further in the story. Hence, the importance of characters. Characters make up a story, they are the pillars or stronghold to which every story rests on. No story survives without the characters. A story that narrates adventure ought to have a particular character or characters that bring the adventurous story into limelight, the theme, the subject, the ordeals, the fun, the romance etc. ought to be inhibited in it. The Old Man And The Sea for instance, the writers portray the protagonist of the story in an amazing way with his life revolving around the sea, the people living around the sea bank and how their personality affect the character. Hence, the importance of character cannot be overemphasized in a story.

Furthermore, the settings- what is the background of the story, the location and how they equally affect the lifestyle and the personalities of the characters? Does your story narrates in the African setting but introduces characters like lykans? Won't that be ridiculous? Why not introduce other supernatural characters well known in the African society and see the reactions of your readers. Hence, the question! How often does the location of a story affects the story? To be sincere, it really does. For instance, a character who grew up in a ghetto will with no doubt exhibit the ghetto-like  traits.
