One novel in one year
A few years ago I was in a cafe with a friendly author. For a while, ignore the solitude, paradox and uncertainty of being a novelist. You' ve got to type. That' something the would-be authors sometimes don't seem to have understood. You tell me your ploy, because if I know it, I'll get out.
Unfortunately, the straightforward reply is: "I have a good one. If you want to be a public author, you have to be one. In a year, can you compose a novel? So how long does it take to compose a novel? Mine first, Crazy Paving, was writing while I was a part-time clerk, young and unmarried with no home-relations.
Dancethe With Me was composed in seven month. When I was with my first kid, my third novel was published on the basis of a one-sided notion. but I lied through my teeth. I' m sorry. I had no children's care, but I had to complete the notebook because we had paid the deposit to buy an apartment for the newborn.
Honey Dew was typed in eight month while I was ill from fatigue. There' s a purpose for it being my quickest work. It' been three time as long as honeydew and it took me four and a half years to comprehend. Her novel will last as long as it lasts - but I will risk my throat and say if you've never done a novel and are really serious and have a career or a home or - God forbid- both, then you look at about three years from beginning to end.
The first year is only a foretaste, the year of generative work. It may seem and often is not possible to be released, but if you have not yet finished writing your textbook, it is the least of your hassles. Just type your text, type it well, then type it even better. I' m worried that I can't even ruthlessly study a manuscript - otherwise I won't be writing a single one.
I' ve taught a night school for imaginative typing. Ian McEwan or Margaret Atwood or Toni Morrison still have something to study, and the reasons why they are great authors is because they know it and work unbelievably harshly on every single one. "Whenever I want to begin a novel," says Susan Hill, "I look at it and it's like a hill, and I say to myself: Oh no, this is too far.
"Kingsley Amis said, "The skill of typing is the skill of placing the pants on the armchair seats. Grab a notepad and a stylus and start with the words: "The next morning after my 8th birthdays my dad said....". If you want, type more than one phrase, but only one phrase is okay.
Things like" Don't be silly, you can't compose a novel" will say, or, perhaps," that's silly, I'm too smart for that".
