How I Wrote my first novel

As I wrote my first novel

I' ve got some friends who want to be a published author. Two dozen authors tell astonishing stories about the efforts that went into writing their first book. Now that' s not entirely true. I started my novel with two things. Finally, I did what I had to do:

This is Caitlin Moran: While I was writing my first volume.

Thing is, once you have been reading many textbooks, you begin to think that it might be one of your own just to type..... At the end of the day, the book and bookstore should be based on reciprocity. When I was 13, I'd been reading a bunch of them. Would you like to know more?

Stuff I would have liked to know when I was writing my first novel - Part 2

After my article about'Things I would have liked to know when I was writing my first novel - Part 1', click here to talk to four other writers about what they would have liked. The historic writers Deborah Swift, Alison Morton, Carol McGrath and Denise Barnes have all given generous sentiments.

Swift is the writer of five historic books and a historic juvenile series. Pepys is written by Accent Press and is written on the basis of the actual ladies in Pepys' diary. I didn't know then that the majority of those who buy historic fictions know something about them.

There''s no escape of the fact that some periods will be more fashionable than others, and so typing in a popular one will give you more likelihood of your novel being found in the market when it comes out with similar accounts. That means I have to accept the notion that my works may never be as well known as similar works written in a famous age.

Pleasing Mr Pepys, my last novel, has a personality at least some folks have known about. There was a TV play here in England entitled The Great Fire with Samuel Pepys and a TV adapt ations of his journal on Station 4. But in America, which is a vast open air and has a preference for Royals, hardly anyone has ever seen the story of Samuel Pepys.

So, where I have won British readership, I may have misplaced US readership because they don't know the nature or the age. Writer of INCEPTIO, PERFIDITAS, SUCCESSIO, AURELIA, INSURRECTIO and RETALIO Roma Nova - all awarded B.R.A.G. Medallion®. is the writer's of Hastings Serie und The Woman in the Shadows.

is the writer of the Voyagers trio and An Orphan in the Snow under her pseudonym Molly Green. I had the brainstorming ideas of 1913 and then I had what I thought was a flash of inspiration - every second story in 2005 would be the heroine's grandchild.

That was far too much ambitions for a first novel that I could somehow finish, but with 150,000 words no agents or publishers would ever bother him.
