Among the many skills I need as an author to write a novel, I also need to have a background in engineering, physics, anthropology, etymology, architecture, city planning, social services, family guidance, history and many other skills and knowledge of these topics and disciplines are needed for me to write a novel.
In addition to these, I need to be able to write a good story, develop characters, create plot, invent cities and plan them out, guide families, build relationships, integrate history, even be well versed in military tactics. But all of these skills and knowledge add up to one thing: My next best novel. It is coming out next month. Stay tuned.
