For the Artists Who Like to Remain Strictly Out of the Box
I have been writing short stories, poetry, and novels for almost thirty years. Started off with paper and pen, and moved through a sequence of typewriters, computers, and laptops, and various incarnations of software along the way.
Now I write books and self-publish them on all digital formats effortlessly via my own company.
Among the new platforms some of the best give little rewards and take a major slice of the royalties.
You have to have a creative mind and be serious about writing regularly. Every day if possible. I’m in an enviable position of being able to devote 60% of my day to writing. Not every day, I do have a life.
Some of the process of writing can be time intensive. Research, drafting, structure, creating characters and profiles for them, mapping out the story – it all takes careful planning.
If time is a factor, you can take shortcuts once you have a manuscript.
Here are my top five tips which have helped me self-publish twelve books in 2013, and three more on the way before 2014 dawns on the world.
What I do at point number 4 is draw up an outline of the story, or the synopsis, and then I know what happens in the story from start to finish. While you may prefer to write your book as is, this approach may work well for you. I can only share what has worked well for me.
