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.
Do you want creative ideas for your book? You can start by looking at the latest trends in the publishing industry.

JD&J Design presents some easy tips for creating a home office in a small living space.
