Book Writing Tips to Finish a Novel in 30 Days
Now is the perfect time to focus on that lifelong dream of yours, the one tucked neatly away at the back of your head. The dream that you’d hope to start whenever you found time in between projects, classes and work. For a lot of people, especially beginners, writing an entire book is overwhelming as it is intimidating and these tips can seriously help out.
1. Enjoy yourself
There’s a higher chance of you actually starting the book when you’re looking forward to writing. At this stage you won’t realize how much of the joy you felt shines through to the readers. As they say, life is short and the time we have to write all the books and novels we want are a lot shorter; don’t invest time in projects that you know are unenjoyable.
2. Learn More About Yourself
Let’s say that you didn’t have fun like you expected, that’s quite alright. Consider what you’re trying to discover in writing a novel or embarking in any project; when you’re longing for podcasts and sitcoms then maybe reconsider the project. There’s a small chance that writing the book is not appealing or the subject wasn’t actually engaging or amusing.
Whatever it is you incorporate into the writing process, writing is still a motionless activity majority of the time. Research states that writers are more focused on their projects after working out in the morning; if writing is something you do first thing in the morning, schedule workouts in the afternoon. Keep in mind that this is long-term practice, an activity that continues even after the book has been completed.
4. Keep the Appeal Going
In order to keep the ideas and the magic going, be sure you write every day or at least edit what you wrote the day before. The reason behind this is to keep the writer engaged, more than 48 hours away from the project and they’ll likely lose interest.
5. Accept the Small Windows
If your mind is already made up that 30 minutes a day will never finish the book, then you’ll never get anything done. With whatever extra time you have, work with it and in a few week the minutes will add up.
6. Remember to Socialize from Time to Time
Despite deadlines, ideas and projects you’re allowed to socialize and not entirely turn into a hermit. A huge part of writing a novel is understanding how people behave and speak so by becoming isolated the purpose is defeated.
7. Don’t Neglect Your Day Job
A thing that’s harder than writing is writing as you worry about your business or salary. Never consider your day job as an obligation coming in second to your craft.
