Writing your novel from Start to FinishWrite your novel from beginning to end
How does it feel to compose a novel from beginning to end?
I wrote a novel, but I didn't publish anything, but I'll be sharing my experiences. You' ve got this whole thing and you' re just trying to put it on the record. This is probably also the best chapter to work on, as you take more attention when writing. His just writing. While you can still like your ideas, it' s getting more and more difficult to motivate you to start writing, because sometimes you just want to work on a different one.
It' s the hardest part, because the creativity is done and it' s more boring. You know, writing always rings good till you start. It doesn't mean writing is terrible. This can be a great way to get out of your own mind, concentrate on something else and tell a thrilling storyline that you (hopefully) like.
His astonishing seeing figures you are creating are growing. When I was writing a novel, I realized that I loved writing for myself. I' m not in the public domain, but I' ve authored several books. To have the first glimpse and then walk with it and develop an idea is purely a delight. Quiet times like commute, showers and homework become thought meetings in which thoughts are wheeled around in the mind.
Designing the novel and making a blueprint is great. At this point I hardly ever suffers from writer's inhibition and rush through the words. The time can pass. That novel is sooooooo last year and I want to move to another place. Recently I released my first novel "The Silence of the Cicadas".
History wouldn't move. There would be some inconsistency in the storyline stream, which would be a real upset. To write a novel for the first one was something of a tiresome duty, because I did so many things incorrectly the first one that it became very difficult to do it.
Writing itself is enjoyable. It can be both enjoyment and sorrow; if it can be better described, it is much simpler to go this way. I had to make the last changes for my diploma dissertation after one months, two wards, one wards and three nights and my butt and back hurt because each one contained more than 50,000 words.
A year of research after the completion of a novel will help me to recover my sanity and prepare for the next work. I' ve written four books and every letter was a pleasure. Innovative writing is a voyage, an investigation of the connections between fantasy and one's own perception of the realities.
However, make no error, writing a novel is an obligation; there is work to do, research and fulfill. However, the work begins with the invention and evolution of personalities that bear the storyline, play adventure, face the challenge, make the reader happy, cry, smiling and afraid.
It is interesting that you formulate your questions in this very particular way; that you are interested in both the conclusion and the beginning of the proces. As most authors, I sometimes began a history, but didn't finish it. These are works that complement my education: it is rare for a good tale to come to a novelist the first try.
As with all trades, writing is improved with practical experience. To me, and everyone will be different, it is a joy to work with words, to tell a history and to join the long and old line of those who have talked to us as a race since we evolved the tongue. I am lucky that my passion for the instruments of speech allows me to find joy in the piece of creativity where I "write at the fit of my pants" and do not stop to tell the narrative until it is finished.
However, I feel the same joy in the basic essentials of editing: getting rid of words, cutting down phrases, making sure they are consistent and eliminating mistakes, find the right words or phrases to convey the emotion and experience of the character, come to a satisfying solution. When you are thinking about becoming a novelist, I will give you the counsel I always give: find and study a copy of Dorothea Brande's outstanding novel "Become a Writer".
When you finish it and perform the sentence excercises, you will find out whether you really want to be a literate and have the necessary skills to become this peculiar and much mistrusted being. You will also be saving a great deal of your own valuable working hours if it turns out that this is not really your way to be creative.
Good fortune on your expedition. There is a huge feeling of gratification when you have edited as much as you can, the first reader has given as much feed back, the writing group has entered and you are willing to let the words go after a final proofread. It' always satisfying (from the creativeness process), annoying (because you have drawn yourself into a corner), diverting (for every instance when a particular phrase takes long searches to find the right words), enchanting (when you see your character overcoming barriers to achieve their goals) and sorrowful (when you turn the last page and know that your relation to these character is basically over, unless there is a sequel).
Not even released. It was very solitary and retrospective, and I also found it very schizophrenic. For me, it was a great experience. The writing is the light piece, working with the falcon and working on it is shit. And I was quite strict and kept to a schedule, I was treating writing as a work.
I' ve defined a start and end times (ish).
