A Collection of Resources Related to Writing A Book
Many people feel they have a book in them that they want to share with the world. However, most people do not attempt it because they don’t know how to start. They believe they need to have the whole book figured out before they start writing; this is not true. Writing is a process that begins with one line, then a paragraph, then a page, and so on.
If you think your skills aren’t good enough, let others decide how good your writing is. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a year writing a book to find out if you have talent, but you can write a sample and get some feedback.
In this post, you’ll find some important tips and resources that can help you write your book. I’ve listed the resources further down the page, but first I have a few tips I’d like to share with you, that have helped me in my writing:
Define the Type of Book
Your first step is to define the type of book you want to write. Will it be fiction or nonfiction?
Nonfiction includes categories, such as a Biography, Reference Books, Self-help books, etc. In the fiction category, your book could be classified as Action and Adventure, Classic, Comical, Crime, Mystery, Fantasy, etc.
