Three- Things to Know Before You Write Your Novel - Writer's Edition
We thought with a few books in our luggage that we should put our minds together and come up with a check list before you go off into the cold water and begin to write a novel. Premise. Though this seems evident, you would be amazed how many writers go directly into typing before they know the fundamentals.
Your story's premises are at the heart of it - the skeletal system that wears out. If someone asks you what your books are about, the assumption is what you give them. Most of the time if you start without typing a presupposition, chances are that your history will have trouble going anywhere.
As an example, last year a friendly writer started to write a novel that knew the nature and his bodily travels, but was uncertain about the fundamental idea behind her work. In that year she began to write a new novel - the play was initially a brief history and took on a lifetime of its own.
Aware of the premises this case, between the month of January and April, she typed 60,000 words and completed the first design. Many authors find it simpler to put their literature in a realistic place, have a personality with a similar professional or domestic background.... things they are used to. If you know an attitude, a profession or a personality so well, it's easily forgotten that the readers don't know.
Your protagonist is a physician? Your novel is playing in South Africa? No matter what your protagonist does and wherever he is, you know the facts, at least the fundamentals. Charisma. Before you begin to write, try to understand everything about your people. Of course, once you get your storyline going, you will know more and more about them, but it is always great to know the fundamentals about who they are, what they are doing, etc. in advance.
Write down a personal description of each of your protagonists, which includes some detail such as: name, look, ages, what kind of people they get along with and their relationships, where they are from. Do they have a family? Determine where you want to push the boundaries, how much you know before you begin, and how much you are learning.
Many free personality profiles are available, which can be a great help. Please click here to see the useful profiles we found. Finally, I would like to say that the creation of a novel is a great enterprise and a great accomplishment in itself, but sometimes it is helpful to have something small that points you in the right directions.
