As a self-published non-fiction author, it can be challenging to create a book that captures readers’ attention and keeps them engaged.
However, by performing a structural analysis on bestselling books within your niche or genre, you can gain valuable insights into what makes these books successful…
… and use this knowledge to create a compelling and successful structure of your own.
Here are 3 key benefits of structural analysis:
1. Understand your target market
Performing a structural analysis of successful books allows you to identify the structure, story arcs, characters, and plot points that resonate with readers in your target market.
This knowledge can help you tailor your own writing to better meet the needs and interests of your readers, making your book more engaging and successful.
2. Learn from successful narrative structures
Bestselling books often follow a specific narrative structure that keeps readers engaged from beginning to end.
By analyzing the narrative structures of these books, you can identify the elements that make them successful and apply them to your own writing.
For example, if successful books within your niche often use cliffhangers or unexpected plot twists to keep readers engaged, you may consider incorporating these elements into your own book to make it more compelling and engaging.
3. Create a unique narrative of your own
Performing a structural analysis can help you identify common narrative structures that have been explored in bestselling books within your niche.
By understanding these commonalities, you can differentiate your own book by exploring new narrative structures that have not been extensively covered by your competitors.
This can help your book stand out in a crowded market and appeal to readers who are looking for something new and unique.
