Scott: Write something that interests you – it’s so much easier to write a book and finish it if you are passionate about the subject. It takes a long time to write a book, months and sometimes years and it your topic isn’t something that you can live with, appreciate it, and feel passionate about then you won’t feel like finishing the book.

 

Write compelling sentences – keep your sentence flow even. Mix up long and short sentences for easier and faster reading. Too many long sentences one after the other tends to drag down a narrative, forcing the story to slow to a crawl and most likely to lose your readers attention.

 

Walk away from it if you have to for a while at least. Many times the mind will still keep working on the story in the background of our thoughts until the story is being figured out.

 

Take constructive criticism in the manner in which it’s given.

 

Don’t assume that you know everything

 

Don’t assume that people correcting your work are correct

 

Do your research. A well-researched book gives a much richer story.

 

Read well-written books/material similar to yours

 

Use a thesaurus to bring in a variety of other words. It gets a little boring to discover that you have used the same word 5 or more times in a paragraph.

 

Have your book edited by a professional editor. Make sure that your manuscript is free from grammatical and spelling errors.
