Become an Author today we a few easy tips
What does it take to write a book? It happens in three phases:
Beginning: You have to start writing. This sounds obvious, but it may be the most overlooked step in the process. You write a book by deciding first what you’re going to write and how you’re going to write it.
Staying motivated: Once you start writing, you will face self-doubt and overwhelm and a hundred other adversaries. Planning ahead for those obstacles ensures you won’t quit when they come.
Finishing: Nobody cares about the book that you almost wrote. We want to read the one you actually finished, which means no matter what, the thing that makes you a writer is your ability not to start a project, but to complete one.
Tips For Writing A Book
Once you’ve begun your book, there are a few great tips to consider that will help you along the way.
Some of the tips I’ve found to be most useful include:
1. Read Books In The Genre You Are Writing
One of the best ways to develop your writing skills is to read the works of successful authors who have already published books similar to the one you are writing. If you immerse yourself in these books, you’ll subconsciously borrow from the style of the author you are reading. Assuming they are a talented, successful writer, this is almost always a good thing.
2. Write Feverishly, Edit Meticulously
When you first start writing a new page or a new chapter, it should come as an uninterrupted flow of conscience. Don’t worry about how good it sounds or how many mistakes there are – simply write. Write feverishly until that page or chapter or whatever section you are working on is done. This is also a good way to combat writer’s block.
Later, you can go back and carefully edit your work, pruning away unnecessary content, polishing your writing, and weeding out mistakes. In the beginning, though, it’s getting your thoughts onto paper that is the most important.
