How to right a BookCorrecting a book
What is the right moment to hire a book editor?
First writers sometimes make a serious error when they are looking for an editor for their first work. During the three years in which I have worked full-time as a free-lance journalist, this has often occurred to me, as I can recall. In most cases, I don't think first writers do this deliberately. They wrote what they think is a good first design, and because they want to do the job right, they start looking for an editors.
However, a first design should never be sent to an editors (unless you are working with a development manager to help you make a useful design). Writers who send in too few cooked works are unconsciously inspired by the ghosts of twins that plague every author every day: anxiety and resist.
Perhaps they are afraid that they do not have what it took to be "a serious writer", so they are sending their "Glibber" to an editorial office in the hope that the editorial office can confirm their work and improve it monuments. Involuntarily, these writers place the weight of failing (or success) on the backs of their writers.
Someone who has worked on their books for three month or a year or many years, and they are so weary of looking at it that they are sending it away because they just want to be done with the citation. What does a first novel by a first novelist mean to you?
If you' re dealing with such an enemy, I can't resent the writers who would rather have the publisher do it. This is your struggle as a novelist. How soon should I employ an editorial staff? This raises the question: When is the right moment to employ an editorial staff? I' m looking for an editors because I' m sick of looking at my work?
Will I need to know more about the art of typing before I can continue working on my work? Am I understanding the costs of hiring a journalist and do I have a home for both? Can I tell the differences between development processing and proofreading? If I' m sick of working on my books but want to get it done, do I have the budgets to employ a development writer to help me overboard?
When you publish yourself: Do I just rush the trial to get another one out? Do I send my books to an editors because I don't have what it took to be a novelist? Or in other words, I hope that a journalist can make my lard into the masterwork I have in my head?
When a first novelist and customer asks me this one fearful thought, I listen to the anxiety that is in every writer: How do you feel about my work? When a journalist replies to this quest-often they are not, unless they have been engaged for criticism of a manuscript--they will probably be forthright.
They' ll pile that wisdom against your books, and your books might not look so good. All writers have doubts whether their books are good or even reasonable. For me, this is one of the most amazing confessions of self-doubt by a author who has had both business and business triumph.
Towards the end of this long trip, as he headed east of Eden, Steinbeck sent a letter to his boyfriend and publisher Pascal Covici, which was released in 1968 in the Journal of a Novelposthum. Writers, this is your war. Atwood Blake is the creator of Don't Research the Reaper:
