How to Write your first BookWriting your first book
I knew what I wanted before I wrote my first book - from Joanna Penn
Speaking at the Strathpine Library Book Group (Brisbane, Australia) the other evening, I was enjoying the time! The ( (almost) released novelist, the jammed sci-fi enthusiast, the nice women who have written children's literature, young adults and poesy, the footy enthusiast who needed help with his sound transcriptions, and of course the 82-year-old who had none of my digitally released niches!
I' m certainly not an authority on the field of typing, so I went to inspiration and to enthuse the group about the opportunities that exist in this area. And I wanted to tell the things I would have known before I wrote my first one: "I was going to write my first book: To write is a voyage, but a work is a destination.
Now you can have your ledger in your hand. However, it's not just about the writer, you have to define a objective and then implement it. Making your SMART objective - specific, measurable, attainable, real-world, time-based. Do not say: "I will have my Lord of the Rings epos in 6 weeks".
You can say: "I will be writing 1000 words a days on my novel and I will complete the first design in 3 months". The first time you start writing a script, you fight because it seems infinite.... but you can do it! You' ll need to know about the release option before you complete your work.
While I was composing my novel, I knew nothing about publication. Also I found out that I should have sent a request and suggestion, as against a finished textbook (at least for non-fiction). Knowing your choices, you can get things moving before you complete the script.
Publishing houses want a "platform" and a marketing-planning as part of their inquiry. I' ve got a lot about it on the blogs - but I'll especially point out how Gary Vaynerchuk got a 10-book dealing with Harper Collins. Again, here is a free award-winning books marketed schedule if you need inspiration for your sourcing!
Let your imagination run wild! Utilize your energies to spread your words! Self-publishing, publishing an e-mail, writing a blogs, writing an article, making a webcast, using print-on-demand. There' s so many possibilities and adventure with your creativeness. Selling your books at Amazon.com, the world's largest bookstore.
There is no need for a publishers to publish your books on Amazon. Use a self-publish services such as Lulu.com, CreateSpace, or Booksurge to share your work. Don't let your completed work sit sadly at home - bring it out! They can even do it with a self-published volume on Oprah.
I don't have such a big history, but I did it on Australian television with my self-published novel "How to enjoy your job". Well, I didn't have the money for a journalist, so I spend nine month studying something about it. It' addicting to publish and publish your work! Soon you may think you will only author this volume, but you will have more suggestions for more of them!
