How to Write first BookWriting the first book
Here is how to type your first book (it's not that difficult)
When you don't think you're able to write a script, you're in good companionship. Many writers think so; I know I do. I still don't think I can "write a book" even after the publication of three well-received accounts, a forth of which is on its way, at least not when I let myself be seen as one scary unit.
Indeed, I would suggest that there is little more paralyzing for a novelist than to leave in the mornings with the frightening aim of "writing a book", and that there are very few writers who are able to do such a thing, if you put it that way. Instead, we keep our eye on the work and the degree of self-impairment low by typing phrases, heels, sections; then, one of these days, we have something that looks like a whole and authentic text.
Some writers, many of them of course, and almost all of them more than I do - who do not adhere to the piecewise patterns I have just interpreted. One could argue that these writers are much nearer to organic authoring of a full text than those who do. I' m referring to J.K. Rowling, who depicts the storylines that would lead her figures through several fiction stories to perfection in a singular series.
Or, the writer Ann Patchett, who completely conceptualises her works before writing a keystroke on the keypad. But even those authors who come up with an impressive overall plan early on do not create their own novels as completely at once as it is. To finish the idea does not mean to finish a work.
Indeed, if you take a closer look at a drama like Rowling's, it looks darker and more fragmented than it could seem at first glance. Though Rowling "started writing The Philosopher's Stone that same evening," she admits that "these first pages have no similarity whatsoever to anything in the final work.
So, what I would be encouraging you today is to give yourselves a rest on this whole thing and instead devote yourselves to work. It is possible to type a phrase even if you do not think you are able to do so. until you finally have something that finally looks like a work.
There is a wider point here, if you don't mind, if I leave the letter as a letter and the letter as a methaphor behind me. Those who succeed, not only in bookmaking but also in setting up businesses, setting up organisations, mental health care for hard-to-reach college kids and other discouraging jobs, are the ones who don't think they have to do it all at once.
