1. Research. You’ll need to research, find sites and blogs like these. Read up, do the research.
2. Reading Gold. Don’t even try to write a book until you have good experience. So read some books, classics, modern day novels. Recommended; Warriors by Erin Hunter, (Series) Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Shannara (Series) Terry Brooks, Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.RR Tolkien. There are many other good books, but I’ve noticed a lot of colorful and descriptive words is these one’s especially.
3. Get a rough draft, plot. Draft up characters and temporary ideas, brainstorm. Spend at least a few weeks on the draft.
4. Get inspired by reading even more books. Even sit on a chair and just think of a good addicting plot line.
5. Always revise and revise. The most important part. Besides grammatical errors, bad sentence forming and awkward character talk is a common error. Read books, books, and books. It’s the best way to learn good writing patterns, because they wouldn’t have published the book unless they had good writing skills.
7. Make sure your message, point of view, etc, is received. Always make sure you have a good plot and ending, the result of a depressing end in a good book not meant to be depressing is always negative, and losing publicity becomes easier.
8. Look out, readers are even more criticizing then you are to your book, story, article, etc. Even the slightest grammatical error brings down your publicity majorly.
9. Publishing articles promoting your book is a delicate part. Firstly, you want key words so people can find your article, blog, easier. Example: Top 9 or 10 Writing Tips for Writing. Thousands of people a day search for “Top ten writing tips”, but maybe a hundred people a day search “Top 9 writing tips.” You never know, but it’s always better to have better tags to get people to your page.
10. Publishing your book. Where do I publish? This is easily the most tedious part. Publishing your book. Kindle, Nook, Amazon, Barnes & Noble all accept a variety of books, as long as it’s unique. Barnes & Noble complains a lot about receiving requests for the same type of books all the time. Nook will accept pretty much all books, but it’s always safer to write a book with a unique plot line which isn’t to hard, most of the time. All it requires is a good imagination and strong creativity, and of course catchy titles.
