The 5 Most Important Things to Know when Writing a Book, Novel or Story
  1. Join your local writing club
    1. a. One thing I did was find one sort of near me (an hour and one half away.
    2. b. It was not exactly the type of group I wanted.  It was for children’s books even though at the time I had only written adult books, novels, stories and poems.  It was an area I wanted to explore.  I have enjoyed it and have many ideas for children’s books now and have learned so much about writing in general, being my own publicist and marketer and web site owner and web site master.  There is a wealth of information among writers and they are all willing to share regardless of your particular genre.
  2. Research the internet.  There are many excellent blogs and writers helps.  Be aware of those that promise to get you published (they usually want to make money off of you) unlike my blog which has my Write Coach service as a completely free service.
    1. a. Look at information in your genre and other genres you would like to explore.  It is all good information.
    2. b. Look for information on form, templates, story boards (this helps set up your story) but do not get locked into someone else’s complete process.  Feel free to deviate and make your process work but also be able to take some advice and be willing to see that they have and use what makes sense to you.
  3. Write like your life depends on it!  The more time you write the better you get, the better you get, the more you increase your chances of getting published, the manuscripts (books, novels, stories) you send in the better chance of winning that “lottery” and the better, and better you get the less of a chance it becomes and turns from an if you get published to a when you get published.
  4. Don’t believe all the self-publishing stories you read. Any one will take your money and make your manuscript (novel, book, or story) into a book.  Even I could do that with a 100% guarantee.  But do you really want to get published that bad or do you want to be good enough to have someone publish you?  Sometimes it works to self-publish and only you (and your Write Coach if I’m helping you) arrive at that conclusion and examine all the pros and cons.
