How To Write A Book
The sad fact is that for every 500 people who desire to compose a book, there might be just 1 or 2 who in fact do it.
I am 100% persuaded that anyone … even YOU, can compose a book successfully if they just understand a couple of fundamental concepts.
In this post, I’m going to cover the precise steps that anybody, including you, can utilize to write a book, essay, or post of any length.
Action 1– Collect
If you are composing nonfiction you will research relevant information about your topic.
If you’re composing a novel, your research may differ a little from this.
If you’re writing a criminal activity novel, you might collect details above the criminal justice system.
If you’re writing a romance novel, you may gather notes and concepts from relationship books, dating websites, and your own relationships and experience.
Action 2– Categorize
In this step, you are totally free to release your inner control freak. Arrange, categorize, examine, criticize, hypothesize. I think you get the point. The entire purpose of this phase is to take what you collected in the previous phase and organize it into an order that makes good sense.
Check out the books and posts, sift your notes down to the finest information, and sort it all out into associated areas that make sense together.
Once you have the related areas grouped together, put those “classifications” in order from very first to last. If you have a lots of notes and other collected things, don’t stress about trying to deal with the entire pile simultaneously.
Just take part of it, and deal with ONLY that part up until you have it organized and arranged. Get some more notes and do the very same thing with those.
You can contribute to any of the notes later if you require. As soon as you have everything analyzed, described, and sorted you can then carry on to the 3rd action in the process.
Step 3– Communicate
In other words, compose it down! All you have to do is follow your notes in order and write about each note and subject in turn.
If you have your notes broken in to sub-categories, deal with each one as a book in itself.
By action 3 your book is practically composed for you if you have actually done Step 2 correctly.
“What about grammar?”
Here’s a little secret about grammar and punctuation: 90% of your grammar and punctuation issues will go away if you keep your writing (composing, I mean your sentences) short, succinct, and to the point.
Keep it brief. Keep it easy. The best writers aren’t the ones who have sentences 3 paragraphs long.
The best authors are those who can get the very same information throughout in just a couple of words– no matter how complex the subject might be.
As for novels, if you can “move” people with 5 words instead of 50, you are doing an excellent thing.
Understanding and applying these simple steps can be the difference between having a dream of writing a book and having a stack of books that you’ve written.
I have actually written 5 books so far using this method.
You’ve just learned one of the most convenient systems of writing in existence.
Whether you’re 40 years old or 10 years old you can use these actions to simply accomplish just about any writing job that is set before you.
