Having just entered into this wonderful new world, I am constantly reading and learning new things every day. No- I am not an experienced writer by any means nor do I really think I am very good. Plain and simple, I just like to write.
So in my search to learn how to write the next best seller, I came across some great sites that have helped me. One of the most important things I have learned is you have to have a plan. Before I discovered this, I would sit down, start writing and words would flow but then I would lose track of what I was writing about, things would get jumbled and I would give up. Now, I get an idea in my head, write down a few paragraphs about what my story will be about, make a list of the characters I want involved in my story, then I break it down into chapters. I try to follow this as much as possible and some chapters are easier to write than others. I also find that sometimes when I am writing a chapter, I will have a lot more to write about and ideas will come to me as I write – But that is okay. If you have an idea as to where your story is going, that is half the battle.
Will I ever be famous – doubt it, but at least I am having fun trying. I thought I would share a web page that I have found useful along my writing journey. It has really helped me. Everyone has a story inside of them, you just have to get it out. Happy Writing.
