Is there a lifestyle to consider? Lifestyle? Yes, definitely. For instance, if you are writing a children’s book and your audience is children that live in the city, but you are telling a story about a child that lives in the country, then perhaps your descriptions will have to be a little more definitive and detailed. I’m sure you’ve heard stories about city children thinking we don’t need cows because we can just go to the store to buy the milk! Really? Maybe they need to learn where milk comes from other than stores. Will your book explain that to them?
Are you writing for youth? If so, will you be able to talk about current technology such as iPhones, TikTok, Instagram and other forms of communication that our youth have at their fingers? Or sports are a good example. Who is the team? What is the sport? What equipment will they need to be successful at the game?
Whatever your story, whatever your audience, you need to consider how they will relate to the story you are weaving. Will it hold their attention with enough attention to details and rules-of-the-game that they will be truly invested in it, as though they are one of the players, or are you going to leave them sidelined and sitting on the bleachers. Either way, you need to make it interesting enough to draw them in and the only way you can do that is by asking yourself questions about who your audience is and what you want them to walk away with when they finally lay down your book.
