Dear new writer, we tell you frankly that you will not be able to learn how to write a book in a single creative writing blog article. Still, as experienced ghost writers, we hope to provide some ideas to help you regain lost inspiration or sharpen your storytelling techniques at the end of this reading.
Ghost writers’ tips: how to start writing a book?
You're probably wondering where to start first. To write a book, you first have to start writing a book.
You will laugh, but the first big challenge is to get to the end of the first draft, to the final point, going from scattered writings and beautiful descriptions to a narrative text with a gripping plot, a plot, solid structure and well-rounded characters. In short, you have to tell an exciting and compelling story.
Many aspiring ghost writers claim to write only when struck by divine inspiration. This would be equivalent to expecting to achieve excellent sports results by sitting on the sofa watching TV and waiting for the urge to go running.
Self-publishing a book is an easy way to bring your book to market, you don’t need to have an agent or go cap-in-hand to a publisher, but that being said, it does require a great deal of hard work in order to make sales, and as you’re doing it yourself, you’ll need to budget for everything that goes along with preparing and promoting a book.
And because the pathway to self-publishing is quite straightforward, many authors choose this option, as a result, there were over 2.3 million self-published books released in 2022 (and if you include traditional published books, the total number is over 4 million). That’s over 6,000 self-published books launched every day (over 10,000 if you include traditionally published books too).
So, there are a lot of authors writing and publishing their work, great for those of us who love to read!
But how many authors who choose to do it by themselves are successful? It’s quite easy to get bogged down in the numbers, but self-pub authors can make break throughs and become true best sellers, here is a list of some of the best indie authors who you may not have realized self-published.
