Here are five tips that will help you make your own book as soon as possible.
It might take a few months to write your book. Be prepared with outlines or reference sheets of plots, places, and characters. For places, you could draw out a map and number or label the places by either chapter or importance. For characters, you could write down every detail about each person involved so that you can refer to it from time to time to ensure that you describe the person the same way throughout the book.
Use Simple Grammar.
All too often writers turn off potential readers by looking up words that are hardly ever used in normal, day-to-day conversation. If readers don’t understand what they are reading, they’ll stop reading. Use words that everyone knows.
Read Your Book Out Loud.
One of the best ways to make your own book is to stop between chapters or ideas and read what you have just written out loud. If the flow of the sentences and paragraphs sound like they sounded in your head when you were writing them down, continue. If not, work on that area until what is on the paper matches what you had in mind.
Remove the ‘Deadwood.’
Perhaps the hardest part of writing is erasing. Especially when you have worked an hour or longer on a particular event or idea, admitting that it just doesn’t fit with the rest of the book is a tough pill to swallow. If you are the least bit concerned about it fitting, remove it – at least temporarily.
Have Someone You Trust Read It.
Making your own book shouldn’t be a solitary adventure. Get ideas from friends, have children or your spouse or friend do some research for you. Ask a junior high student who will be honest read it and tell you what they think about it.
Making your own book as soon as possible shouldn’t be a stressful situation if you are organized and determined to become an author. For more tips, check out http://howtowriteabookasap.com
