What to do when you Write a BookSo what do you do when you write a book?
After you write your book, what can you do?
When you got up early, you got up early, you broke your writer's deadlock and you wrote your book. After you write a book, what's next? A fortnight ago I completed my book. In order to incentivise me, my buddies Jeff Goins and Tim Grahl and a few others dared me to write a cheque for $1,000 to the president, whom I hold most in contempt, on the proviso that it would be sent if I did not complete my book by the due date.
Here you can find out how I wrote my book and what I learnt about the script. Well, now that my book is done, I've planned my next moves. Cause once you write your book, you're not really done. Actually, the completion of your book is just the beginning.
This article discusses what comes after you have written a book. However, before we discuss what you should do, let's take a minute to discuss what you should not do after you write your book. Don't mail your book to a publishers. To write well is to rewrite. When you want to be released, do not yet submit your book to any of the following people:
If you submit your paper before it is finished, it may cause a permanent fire on a firewall. Don't submit your book to betatowners. Betatakers, those who are reading your book and give you feedbacks before you post it, can help make your manuscripts from average to inferior. If you don't, you might get some kind of feed-back that you're not prepared for, or that might even hurt your self-confidence as an author.
We' re about to discuss the best times to get them to out there. Don't work on your book. After finishing their book, what most of us do is go back to page 1 and begin line processing from the beginning, correct spelling mistakes, correct grade and polish phrases until they shine.
After you have finished your book, there will be big structure issues. And what happens when you notice that you have to trim a section that you have polished for hour s-even-day s? Instead, I have a better system that saves you a lot of valuable bookwork.
Well, since you know how to prevent the traps after you have written a book, let's discuss what you should do next. You not only need a rest after you write your book, your book also needs one. That' because after the completion of your book you have no prospects.
What you don't know is good, what is evil, what needs work, what is good. Let your book rest for a few weeks, even a whole months, gives you a chance to get back the prospect and see what your book really is. I left my book for two whole week and only now do I feel like starting the editorial work.
You should carefully study your book from beginning to end before going to work on it. Doing this is the second stage in obtaining perspectives on your book, and while it is tedious, it will store you tens of hours because you will see exactly what you need to work on for your next design. While you' re writing, ask yourself the following question and take a note of what you find:
Which data needs to be re-written? This is my next move and I am both upset and a little scared of what I will find. If you are reading your book, you will almost certainly be amazed. But, above all, how different what you actually have written is from what you had in your mind.
You may have to mourn some things after reading your book. So what could become of your book? I did it for myself when I wrote the book, and I'm really curious to see how my book is changing as I go through the work.
Since you have a good plan for where your book is and where it should go, you are prepared for the second design. In your second design, it's not about correcting typing errors and polished types. âThis is when you write new paragraphs for those boreholes you found when you were reading through your design.
That is, if you intersect the paragraphs that were not necessary, and if you re-write the paragraphs that were damaged but no longer working. That part can be like an archaeological dig when you try to find the hidden underneath. If the overall texture of your book is right, you should only begin to shine after that.
Now that your second design is finished, it's a good moment to invite other users into your book, even if they are already reading the game. Your book is not enough before that, and if you get too much commitment from other folks, you loose something of your own individual visions. With the second design, you can include more of yourself in your book.
Then at last, after all these stages, your book is time to be proof-read, grammatically reviewed and polish. But as difficult as it is to write the first design, I have found that it is much more difficult to edit. The majority of my typos are due to the second drafts, not the first. It can also be the most thrilling part of the write making experience, because at last you see what you have done becoming a book.
Lots of folks want to write a book. Only a few have ever killed one. It is a unique opportunity to work on your book. Once you have reached this point, I trust you will do your best to do it.
