If you’re just starting out, it can be overwhelming to find tips that are helpful and not simply noise.
With the vast amount of sources on the internet, diluting the good information from the bad can give you analysis paralysis.
Everybody has rules. You must do this. You must do that. Stop right there! There are no hard and fast rules. Sure, basic grammar rules are good to know, along with sentence structure, but finding your voice is a crucial step in getting started. Don’t get bogged down in rules before you’re even writing.
There. Take a deep breath. You’re free!
Now let’s look at some easy writing tips for beginners. We’ll move on from there. If you’re at the intermediate level, I’ll have articles for you later (theme and structure), but for the time being, I’ll be focusing on those starting out.
Did you know…most people want to write a book?
“I should write a book…” Sure. Great. But they don’t write a book. Nope. They never even start writing. They talk about wanting to write a book, talk about all the bits and pieces of it, but it ends up being a vacant dream.
There are two types of people in the world…
You know where I’m going with this, right? Those who do things, and those who talk about doing things. Who do you want to be?
Of those people that do sit down to start writing a book, only a few of them finish. Yep. There’s that pipe dream again.
If you’re ready to tackle your project, I’m ready to help you.
On WritingSmarter.com I’m going to help you plan your book, structure a book, discuss writing apps, software, plots, themes, grammar, and more.
Let’s get started.
If you’re ready to begin writing a book or finish one you’ve started, I’ll show you how you can get going and stick with it in small bites at a time.
I’ve written and published more than thirty times. I know how to finish a project. That’s an important piece of the puzzle, finishing what you started.
I write under multiple pen names (different names for different genres – which I’ll discuss at a later date) and know how to write, format, publish, and market my books. They’re available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Kobo, and Google Play, as well as in some library systems.
Now that you know what this website is about, and how I can help you, are you ready to dig in?
