I want to be a Writer but I never WriteI' m a writer, but I never write.
I' d like to be a great author, but I've never even been to a school. What do you want me to do?
I know most folks will tell you to just get started and keep going, but I disagree. It' not enough to just type every single working week if you don't know what you're doing. This means only unhelpful typing for a few hours, even a few hours. To create a story that folks want to hear, you need to know how to put it together.
There are certain editorial and publisher requirements as to how your history is structured. Like, for example, I was writing a tale in Iran where there was a marriage. So I had to research how the marriage would take place, the meal, the traditions, shared iranic name, clothes etc. to make an interesting but proper history.
Tutorials on typing; Grammar and Interpuncture (very important..... many self-published textbooks swim in blatant mistakes and typos), Characters, Dialog, Plots, Tempo, Point of Position (POV), inner and external conflict, subplot, scenes and continuations, styles, storyboards, twists, chapters hook, tension, killing opening line and satisfactory ends.
When you want to start scriptwriting sci-fi, you have to take a course in the Word House. Romances need a post-ending happening known as HEA. How can I find these courses? In many cases, there is a need for schooling. I have seasonal lessons in my neighborhood reading room. The best of all is that there are literally thousands of courses you can take online.
Googles online typing lessons and you will get many pages. Some websites provide costly courses, so be cautious. I would suggest you start with a few less costly ones to see if you really want to start typing and go on. It is not necessary to have a diploma or take an expensively paid course to do well.
You have lessons all year round. They can join their website for free and get a rebate on their class. Gain a feeling for how a tale is narrated, how it begins, how it develops through the tale to a satisfactory ending. but if you can join some groups, even those that are on-line.
Often these groups provide written courses and lessons. It'?s an artistic thing, but it'?s a scholarly one. It' very pleasing to see your name on a tale. It' twice as good to know how good the public is talking about your work. Type excerpts (800 - 1500 words). And the more you type, the better you get.
You' re going to make new literary errors, we all have. I' m saying: Begin with brief novels, because they are very brief and do not last like a novel years. Sharing your story and getting feedbacks. Grab the feed-back and use what you find positive and disregard the others.
There are some who do not give good feedbacks, or there is a motif behind their bad comment. And, if you read and criticize other tales, be friendly, give good reviews and find something good to say to them. It' difficult to listen to hard things about your typing. Submission to competitions is another way to get good reviews, because as a rule the judge are writers and agencies who have their fingers on the heartbeat of the good letter that auctions.
If you think you made a great little novel, be bold and hand it in to a journal that will publish literature in the style you author. Often it is not because your history is not good, but because the history does not meet their needs. After all, they run a shop and they choose the tales they think will best amuse their reader.
Here is a place to submit. Look at their rules thoroughly. http://flashfictiononline. com/main/submission-guidelines/We are publishing tales from 500 to 1,000 words in length. They' re very brief, but they' re still tales. Most of us are fond of sci-fi and phantasy, but we also like fictional literature; and in any case, big fictional writings are not always easy to classify.
