How To Become A Successful Writer
It can be daunting to begin your dream of being a writer. How do you be successful? Well, first you have to write a story. But, how? Follow these steps!
Choose your Topic/Genre
If you don’t know what you want to write about there’s no point in trying to start. Find inspiration in the world, do some free writing, do anything to figure out what subject you’re passionate about.
Buy the Supplies
Make sure you have a good computer and word processor to work with. There’s nothing worse than dealing with a slow computer that freezes every second and doesn’t save your work. You also might want to invest in notebooks. Some people like to write their ideas and plan their stories on paper and then take it to the screen.
Procrastinate for Months
Make excuses like “it’s not the right time” “I have to be in the mood” “I’m not inspired yet.” (Trying to start writing is the worst)
Make a Damn Plan Already!
Stop writing it in your head. Write an outline for each chapter of the book.
Cry and pound your head on the table.
Scan through your social media.
Organize your desk area.
Talk to your friends and see if they inspire you.
Change locations for a fresh perspective.
Take a deep breath and open that goddamn word document.
WRITE WRITE WRITE WRITE WRITE
Destroy your physical and mental health for a month trying to figure out how to write the ending.
Read your book over again and stare at it until you hate it.
Edit the book like the merciless fiend you are.
Share your finished book with your friends and family and promote it like it’s the only thing you know how to talk about.
*wash, rinse, and repeat*
