How to get a Book Published at a young AgeAs one brings out a book in young years
I' m 14. Can I publish a book?
While you can make it your own e-book, you are more likely to be hit by a flash than a traditional book without a whole bunch of work published first. That first book of yours is gonna shit. Irrespective of what you have listened to, no one has been able to accept his first book at your age as the first design without much editorial work.
Bookstores take a long while. When you write in a medium that still unbid ly accept a manuscript, practically every first writer I've ever read about said it took a year for the editor to tell him that his book was accepted. Then they went through at least another year of revision and editing, and then it was another year before it was actually released.
Some of the movies you see on the bookshelves this past months were probably shot around this hour last year and could have been shot two or three years ago. Unless you write in a manuscript accepting unwanted scripts, it will take even longer because you need to find an agents first.
I' ve just begun to be sent from Disney to YA bookfest, and there are a bunch of teenagers like you. The" children" that I met and that were published are urged to writing, the way young ballerinas are urged to dancing, young Olympic athletes to top performance, young musician to performance.
This means that most of their free hours are spent in studies and practice....and most of their free hours are spent at the same age. Her first book, spoken in a professional way, will be shit, and I can tell you that without even seeing it. You will probably have three to four of the work you put into your book to rework and polish it.
You can criticize for what it is, correct and do something to help, and not make an assault on you? It is one of the things a serious novelist studies early and cares about, that a serious critic, hard as it may be, is not a one-to-one assault. Wherever you like that phrase, that heel, that section, when a seasoned journalist or a seasoned writers says it's bullshit, well, it's bullshit.
Besides, your book is no longer "yours" as soon as you let someone else do it. It is not your soul, it is not your baby, it is something you have done, and if you have done it poorly, you must comprehend that it is real, and why and how, to comprehend how to repair it or how to better spell the next one.
When you can't stand the critique that tears your book to pieces, don't go for it. Cause if you think that publishers are evil, hang on until you see what your male and female teenagers who aren't your boyfriends are going to say about it. Do you know how to deal with tough critique?
Ready to work professionally and write at the same in one? Of these 10%, half are also in things like journalists and techies, and of these 10%, 9% only earn a livelihood (we call them "High Midlist" authors).
Same goes for every other kind of music - probably things in the mains are even more difficult (The Fault In Our Stars or About a Boy would be regarded as "mainstream"). That means whether you like it or not, you will have a daily work and have to work in your free hours.
This means, like it or not, like everyone else in your grade, you need to begin to think and plan what you will be doing for the remainder of your lifetime besides typing. If all these things are answered "yes", you are prepared for a long, hard but worthwhile while.
When one of them answers "no", consider it a worthwhile pastime for yourself, for your mates.
