How do I Start Writing a Novel?

Post by mimi cici on Thu Jun 14, 2012 1:19 am

Hey,these are the steps you can choose while writing a novel,in which the processes are akin to getting directions for success. Enjoy

1-Many authors will meticulously plan and outline the novel.
2-Others will simply write the beginning and take a "see what happens" approach.
3-If you're having difficulty choosing, try this: write the ending of your novel first. That way, you know where you need to end up once you start writing the beginning.
4-Develop a main character that you care about,and concern yourself with writing a character who you want to follow around for three or four hundred pages.
5-The easiest way to achieve this is to think of your book as a series of "What Ifs."For example,What if this character met that character? What if my truck driver main character has an accident? What if my main characters get a divorce?.
6-When writing a novel, be sure of two things: first, be sure you care about your main character. This will make it easier for you to write what happens to them. Second, be sure to add a complication, or "What If" scenario. Keep asking questions and your characters will keep answering them.

I love the "see what happens" approach Smile Sometimes when you read some works, you have the impression that the author himself/herself doesn't know where this is goind and I really love that Wink

Thanks for the interesting topic
