This one was born on a whim and, subsequently, is about to have a sequel thanks in part to the wonderful program at UNC Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism. To all things, right?
So…You Want to Write a Book? is my take on getting all your little ducks in a row before you start writing. Filled with plenty of humor and prime examples of what I did wrong along my journey (thus far), it provides potential authors with a baseline for where to begin. Ironically, this non-fiction how to book is meant for fiction books.
Writing a book can be the hardest task an aspiring author will undertake, or it can be the fullest, most rewarding experience. The choice is yours. From creating worlds to building a strong set of characters, so much goes into the writing of a good fiction book that the author becomes inundated with details. The wall builds up until finishing a work of quality fiction seems impossible. Take heart! You are not alone. With So You Want to Write a Book new and aspiring authors can follow a simple, time proven plan for getting that book out of your head and onto the screen.
My husband and I both enjoy writing. I have written since I was a teenager. My husband since his 30s. He took several creative writing classes in college. Had some of his work published in the college magazine. When we saw this book by Christian Freed we bought it for some insight into getting published. My husband found the character building suggestions very helpful. He began to edit a book he had been working on for sometime. Due to poor health in 2019 he hasn’t tried to publish but 2020 is here now. This book is very helpful to all who wants to learn more about writing and publishing.
