You are sitting in front of your laptop, pc, typewriter, or legal pad. You want to write a book, but your not sure if it will be good. Your unsure of yourself, have your stomach tied in knots, and butterflies have made a home in belly. Welcome to the world of being an aspiring writer.
Every good and great writer was in the same spot you are finding yourself in today. The only way to become a good or great writer is to WRITE your book. Remember, your first draft, your going to hate. It’s like throwing darts at balloons. To get to the place you want to be, you have to write. Learn from the experience, if your not sure if the Characters will be liked, interview them.
Picture in your head where you would be if you hadn’t written the story. To understand that this is an ongoing, never-ending, journey. You will always hate your first draft, but how can you develop a great story if you don’t write the first word? Remember, if you want to know if the book is good, read it. If it doesn’t appeal to you, it probably won’t appeal to anyone else.
The only way to find out, is to write your book. Don’t think ahead of yourself. Focus on your story, write it, edit it, rewrite it, finish the book, then reread it as a consumer. If at that point you like your book, do you final edit and create your book cover, then print it.
I wish you all the success in the world, Welcome to being a writer, now all you need to do is open the door, and let your imagination soar!!!
