Writing a book is an easy process. Anybody with a story to tell can write a book. It can be for their own pleasure or to publish for the people to experience or witness. It may seem daunting at the start, but it is not an impossible process.
Below mentioned are a few steps on how to write a book:
1. Get a Notebook
One may think why to write in the notebook, one can directly start in a computer. The reason why is it is sometimes good to be old fashioned is that it is not always possible to be around the computer when inspiration or bestest thoughts strike. Thus, the best way is to have good old fashioned pencil and paper irrespective of the location where one is.
2. Put on the thinking cap
Once you have your notebook handy pen down all the thoughts. Once you feel that you have written enough, read them over. Take suggestions if possible. Decide which idea to go with and make sure that it sounds unique.
Create an outline. The outline will enable one to define the arc of narration that is the beginning. The beginning of the story is often the hardest. The bestest way is to start as broadly as possible.
Be your own critic. Edit the written points mercilessly. If you feel that the story or the plot is going nowhere.
The writer should be well aware about the elements that a good novel carries. Sentence structure, character distinction, personality of the character, all the elements should fall in place.
Every story has minor and major characters. It is important to do justice with all the mentioned characters.
Engaging oneself in doing proper research before attempting to write is very important. One can make use of internet. One should go online and gather appropriate information.
One must format the book appropriately. It forms an important part. The books that do not get published are the ones that are poorly organized. Formatting gives an organized approach and proper understanding of the content that is mentioned.
The writer needs to be persistent in the writing. The more persistent one is, the more it is better. It does not have to be perfect, but it does not have to be filled with flaws either.
