Al-Asiri: It is not hard to be an author if conditions are fulfilled"

Yesterday, Monday 27/10/2014 AD, a member of the Board of Directors of Abha Literary Club who is also both an accredited trainer by the American Board, and an Academician at King Khalid University, Dr. Eman Al-Asiri, arranged a workshop entitled "How to compose a book". The workshop coincided with the 13th Book Fair, which is held at University. The workshop's venue is the Headquarter of the Faculty of Dentistry, Women's Department.

During the workshop, Al- Asiri explained how to compose a book properly and correctly, and showed that it was not difficult to be an author if you followed the correct ways of authoring and track all the steps very carefully. She said, "An author should read a lot, and should be patient, and have a great desire in writing along with skill and talent. She added that a good writer should entertain his work in order not to give up later. Moreover, a serious writer has to practice writing constantly, has review references and sources from stem to stern, and has to acquire authoring skill. He also should record his thoughts constantly in order to benefit from them later during the writing process."

Regarding creativity in the art of writing, Asiri stated that it is on the top of the list of an author, if he wanted to become unique and influential. She said, "publishing a book doesn't mean you are the best, but the best is the one who controls the qualities mentioned above."
