Not all can become successful writers. Forget about being successful. You should be capable of writing 40,000+ words in the first place. You have to write something that aspires people to read more of your books. Writing a book is not so simple, but do not worry we are here to help you. Follow these 5 steps given below and then get ready to witness the author within you.
5 Simple Steps:
Like we pointed out earlier it is important for you to know that you are capable of writing. Now all Tom, Dick, and Harry can write. What we are talking about is that you ought to have flawless flow with impeccable grammar. Unless you are a native speaker of the language, you always have to be careful of what you write. So the bottom line is that make sure that you are capable of writing and that you are doing it out of self-interest
Pick the right genre:
There are a lot of genres, but it all begins with deciding where your book is going to fall under fiction or non-fiction, the rest will automatically fall into place. Unless you are doing the writing work for someone else, you are going to pick a genre that brings your writing skills out to the world. You can get advice and recommendations here, but you need not have to take them seriously. Pursue your heart!
Do a Lot of Research:
No matter what genre your book falls into, you should be prepared to do a lot of research to make sure that you are writing the right stuff. Be it philosophy or history both demands a lot out of you. It is your knowledge and wisdom that the book is going to reflect. Once you gain a reputation as a writer, people are going to blindly follow all that the book tells them. So realize your responsibility and act accordingly.
Before you etch out the final copy:
Never forget some of the important things before you get to write. You have to stay focussed and motivated in the whole process of writing the book so find something that keeps you motivated throughout. Apart from staying motivated, some easy tips to help you write better:
- Go backward:
Unless you are writing a self-help book, the best way to write a book is to begin it from the end. Simply fix the climax and then design the plot. This helps you to have a good relationship with your characters, fill your story with twists, and you can also quickly unveil the plot.
- Never feel about rewriting:
Once you are done with the rough draft, the next step is to rewrite the story to make sure that the book is traveling on the right track and that your readers will know what you want them to know and understand the story the way you want them to.
- Take a break:
Do not feel ashamed of taking a break because they are important to bring the best out of you. This will prevent you from different conditions like ‘writer’s block’ or ‘blank page syndrome.’
This will finally lead to the end of the book.
Now that you have written your book, it’s time to get the hell out and party hard. All work and no play make you dull. Before you continue to write your next book take a break, travel to new places and meet some new people. You will probably not be able to do it for the next few months or even a year.
