Political fiction is timely literature that seeks to change some facet of society or that persuasively espouses a particular political viewpoint. Political fiction can truly be powerful: stories have time and again served as a catalyst, a call to action, to inspire people to change their world.

Here are some steps to get you started as the next Voltaire, John Steinbeck, Ayn Rand, Gore Vidal, or George Orwell.
The old rule in business is that you don’t discuss politics or religion; for blogs not focused on politics, just following that rule is far better advice than the otherwise good advice in this article. My first blog was a political one that I ran as a test of the software before going live using it to provide news on a business site, so I’m no stranger to writing about politics.

Once completed it is highly advisable that you read through your work in order to check for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Such things can be costly but are so easily remedied. A couple of things that you may wish to consider when checking your work are, reading it aloud to yourself and/or getting a friend or college to read through your essay. Such tactics can help weed out any errors that remain. Reading aloud also helps to confirm that your sentences flow well and hang together coherently and should also identify any passages of writing that might need touching up or rewriting. Having a fresh pair of eyes look at your work can also be a great benefit and they are more likely to pick up on things that you may have missed first time around.
