Proven tips for first-time authors
Today's commentary was written by FastPencil Community Manager Amanda Guest, a page that shows the quickest and simplest way for the author to create and share a text. In the FastPencil blogs she often gives advice on how to create and market self-published titles. We very often get to know that they know they have a great script in them, but they don't know how to get it out.
These are our proven and real typing hints to get you on your way to your best first book: You have to get into the right thinking zone before you can start to write and banish all thoughts of self-doubt so that you can design it. Not only will this make it easier for you to get into the game, it will also help you throughout the entire write proces.
Now all we have to do is type! When you start typing, make sure you use the live part! Often when a novelist is lacking faith in his work, it is because the work itself seems melancholy. Are you not sure what I mean by "the live voice"? The letter with an energetic vote happens when your topic executes an action:
When your typing is lacking in power or when it takes a great many words to communicate your ideas, you probably use the second part. The letter in the lyrics happens when the act happens to the subject: The phrases typed in the live vocals are more clear, succinct and do not loose the readers half way.
Have a look at the last page break that you just couldn't put down, or read a non-fiction book that you find particularly binding. I' ll wager you'll find it's spelled in the live part! Although we come from all social classes, we all want to be better authors at the end of the days.... Let me see - haven't I already listened to some of these sentences?
Everyone is succumbed to the lightness of stereotypes from times to times - especially when it's too late, when you' re weary and the iridescent, eloquent words you want to use just don't come to you. It is important that you take the necessary amount of your working hours after you have completed your typing to find all the words you want to ban from your work.
You will learn that your storyline begins with sentences and thoughts that belong to you alone. Sitting down to type, but first you choose to take a look at what you have written during your last meeting.... and see something so bright that you choose to work.
Maybe you hang yourself by always typing the same phrase again and again before you can continue? When you have said yes to one of these scenes, edit as you type, and for your authoring to be successful, it's quitting the game!
Efficiently working on each phrase as you go should mean that your writing flows to each page in a perfect way. But in fact, while you are writing, editorial is one of the most devastating practices you can have as a novelist. It is not only that you slow down, but you could hinder your entire creativity as well!
All of us know that our mind is split into two parts - the one on the right (rational) and the one on the right (creative). Imagine the right hemisphere as your work. Let yourself realize your full artistic power by turning off the lefthand side of your mind and really focusing on putting all your thoughts on hard copy or computer-screens.
It is not until you have written your play in its entirety that it is finally decided to ask your lefthand side of your mind to do it. By splitting your typing and edit into two separate stages throughout your entire typing workflow, you can type more quickly and be more creative than ever before. At least I found myself working on this entry at least five rehearsals before I wrote it!
Lao-tzu, the ancient philosophers of China, said: "A thousand leagues begins with a simple step", and your trip is no different. Keep in mind that typing and editorial are very different things. You have enough free reworking and refinement to do later!
