My first novelFirst novel I wrote
It' good that my first drafts are for me alone, and yours should be too.
I wish I had known before I started writing my first novel
So, you're gonna write a script. Now that' s it if it doesn't suck the blood out of your souls. So here are some typing hints and hints - or a few skills I have learnt about my own work. I' m working on my eighteenth novel - my first one, Fools Rush In, appeared in 2006, and my last one, On Second Thought, appeared in January 2017.
It has become simpler in some ways, and much more difficult in others. However, every single times I enter "The End", I jubilate, dancing around the offices with my hounds, opening myself up to another paper and taking some notations. It' entitled "Before You start another book" and contains memos about myself, how I messed up my last script and waste my precious little bit of manpower and how I will never do it again (or will, but not for want of knowledge).
Downstairs are my top 5, and denesh, it would be so much timesaving if I would listen to myself. Oh, sure, it's great to hide your character in the windows or cupboard while her folks are having sex, but moments have to come for more than" That would be funny, frightening, exciting"!
It may not be a good season for a relaxing stroll in the forest if the murderer is hunting your heroes. While everyone's a guy, no one should be a cliche.
Whilst it is difficult to keep an overview of all movable parts (especially if you publish a nano manual or a short deadline), it will pay off in the end. One thing every successfull author on the planet has in common is that they were all unreleased once.
You have to be brave to make a good one. You do what it needs to be done to write, complete and improve your work. Their next novel, ON SECOND THOUGHT, will be published on January 31, 2017.
