Wondering How To Become A Writer?

WonderingWondering how to become a writer? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

In this website you’ll find all sorts of information to do just that.

You’ll learn things like…

·         How to use foreshadowing to create believable fiction

·         Why revision is the key to quality writing

·         How to create realistic dialogue

·         And many other things

So Where Do I Start?

So Where Do I Start?When you first begin writing you will realize, in short, that writers write.

They keep going through the hard times, through all the self doubt of whether they are any good or whether they are on the right path.

And, you’ll find plenty of resources here to help you, not only become the writer you want to be, but to publish and market your novel online as well.

So What’s Next?

So What's Next?I once read Steven King say that there is only one rule to writing.

What is that, you ask?

What is the one secret key that will open the door to your bestselling novel?

OK, here it is.

Don’t be boring.

Well, that’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? And, perhaps, a lot easier said than done.

You see, there will be no definite answers to the questions you have along your journey. But you will have clues and things that point you in the right direction.

One Small Step For Man…Or Woman

Don’t be boring. That’s pretty subjective isn’t it?  A discussion of tax laws might be boring to one reader but tremendously interesting to another.

The point is, you need to know who your audience is.

That is the first step in the right direction. Once you understand this you will understand what other decisions to make.

One Small Step For Man...Or WomanOne Giant Leap For Humankind

The next giant leap is to choose a literary genre.

A literary genre can be compared to a style of house.

A house is a house. But a two bedroom ranch is going to appeal to one type of buyer while a four bedroom Victorian will appeal to another. Genres come in different flavors too.

Science fiction might be right for some and Gothic novels for another. You just need to know who you are writing for.

Starting to get the idea now?

Once you’ve answered one question you will have others, plenty of others.

  • What type of plot is best for my novel?
  • What kind of characters should I use?
  • Should I write narrative at this point or dialogue?
  • The list goes on and on.

Your journey will be one of questions and answers.

Some questions will have a number of answers and you will have to determine which answer is the best one for your story.

But Don’t Worry!

The nice thing about how to become a writer is….

It’s not a performance art.

Shh! (No one can hear you writing poorly in the other room. You don’t have to show anyone until you’re perfectly satisfied).

But Don't Worry!So How Do I Get To That Point?

As you find yourself answering your question of how to become a writer you will not only be creating characters on a page, you will also create your own character.

Just who are you and who do your readers see you as?

Whatever and whomever you may become, congratulations! You’ve just taken the first step toward that goal of answering the question of how to become a writer.
