First Steps to Writing a BookGetting started writing a book
So what are the first few simple footsteps in authoring a work?
While in first class, Chi rushed home one night and told his mom, "When I grew up, I'll be a great type of book!" Clearly he could see the way ahead - from the writer of a literature journal at high schools to the authoring of bestsellers, from speeches at speeches at speeches and publisher meetings to the representation of well-known authors, this is a cliché.
It seems sometimes that everyone writes a script. But" passion" is of course not a" vocation". A " need " is also not a " call ". Even "a naughty little tale, full of wonders" is no call to compose a work. Mm-hmm. I mean, I've been to many gigs in my whole lifetime, and I know that the whole wide globe is made up of a million different kinds of folks who seem to want to be every single outfit.
However, the wish to be a Rockstar does not mean that you can actually be a singer, or that folks are paying for you to be sung. There is a big discrepancy between listening well in the chorus and asking them to spend $18.99 on the new CD at WalMart.
I' m a very good swingdancer and can usually make a rookie look good as a dancing hall mate. There is quite a big discrepancy between being a fairly good non-professional performer at the publisher's prom and asking folks to buy a $65 to see me dancing in a show.
It is an artwork, and any artwork requires exercise, education, creative visions, talents and work. Too often I see guys who want to make a script because they think they can make a quick dollar, and they don't have all that. Alternatively, they think they have a "lesson" to learn the whole wide universe, and they need to record it - as if all the teachings of their lives were publishable.
All books are a good way of combining an excellent concept, written well, preferrably by an editor with a sound workstation. Her interesting storyline may work well if you tell it at home, but that doesn't mean it's a work. So... do you want to make a notebook?
So the first thing to do is learning to type. Don't suppose because you have been graduating from high schools you have the skill to type a textbook that keeps me read for 250 pages. Good typing requires a great deal of practise - just as everything that is valuable needs time. You don't puke out a design of your ideas and you don't wait for a publisher agreement.
Arts take a long and disciplined life and generally a great deal of failures before they are successful. So, you' ll be learning to type, practicing your writing techniques, learning from other authors, listening to what journalists have to say, asking a question about the deal and getting to know the game. It is a reef about the history of Carole Lombard, which was found at the corners of Hollywood and Vine.
"Writing this script may bring magic." I' m writing the next big US novel and getting discovered!" One thing that makes it so great is that the wonder has actually occurred. With FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY, the printing wonder of this ten-year-old publisher has been exhausted. They are welcome to disagree with me and this fact could lead them to ignore what I am saying here.
And quite honestly, if it is a work that no pros have published or contributed to, then it's probably not very good. Now go take a typing course. Get to know the trade. Join a meeting and get to know other folks who know the shop. If so, let your imagination run free and start typing, but be brave enough to show it around and let others take a look.
