Writing - How to Write a Novel

This article is short, but a word of caution before beginning. However, it is imperative to your continued success as a novel writer. Without a clear plan of action, you will be in total chaos for a couple of chapters from now. So please take your time!

In writing, there are many ways to organize your plot and character’s development. In no particular order, here are my top tips for writing a novel that interests you. I cannot tell you which method is best for you due to so many factors including your personality, writing preferences, etc. However, these methods will give you ideas on the best way to organize your plot.

Before starting your first draft, sit down and write something down in order to get rid of any writer’s block. Brainstorm for ideas and start with the most simple idea possible. Try not to let your character’s name be too complicated or you will not be able to keep up the main plot.

Brainstorm first by writing just the basic premise for your story. Then after you have a clear idea of what your story entails, brainstorm for subplots, themes, characters, and events. Use your best writing time to write the majority of your first draft. Once you have your main plot figured out, start planning out your subplots. You can use a blank page to write this part of your story. Or if you do not have a blank page, try using one of your scrapbooks to get some ideas.

The plot is the heart of your story. This is why it is so important to write your first draft while you are still writing the majority of your novel. By having an idea of where the story is going, you will be better prepared when it comes time to write. You will also be less likely to go back and re-write sections that have been deemed unnecessary.

A great way to get your book written faster is to make sure you edit as much as possible in your editing pad. You will want to go over everything in your first draft. This will include anything that may need to be changed, deleted, or changed in some other way. This is the best way to ensure that your final product is exactly the way that you want it to be. Also, when you edit, look to other books for examples to help spur new ideas.

If you do not have the time to edit what you have written in your first book, consider taking classes to teach you how to write. There are many different classes available and most colleges offer such classes. Some colleges will even take you to a class to demonstrate actual writing so that you can see if it will work for you. In addition to learning how to write, taking classes on how to sell a novel can be helpful. Once you have learned how to write a novel, you will know how to market your book effectively.

Writing a novel is an exciting experience and once you learn how to write a novel, you will be able to produce a great novel quickly. It is always a good idea to write each draft of your book, then go back and edit what you have written in each revision. Following the step-by-step process outlined in this article will definitely help you write faster and more efficiently.

The first step in how to write a novel begins with your main character. Katniss Everdeen is one of the main characters from the Hunger Games trilogy. Everdeen has been taught by her mother to always be strong. When her father, who was a huntsman, dies she is left to live in the area where he had lived. Katniss soon finds herself participating in the gladiator competition in the hopes of winning the position of Katniss the champion.

The novel starts off when Katniss wins the first place in the first round of the gladiator competition. From there the book jumps to the second round where she battles with another contestant under the arena’s arena floor. The third and final book ends with Katniss attempting to save the remaining children from the remaining gladiators. Once the series ends, the book is revised and prepared for another novel.

Learning how to write a novel can be frustrating at times. If you are having trouble starting your first few sentences and you find yourself having to stop and re-write sections of your story, it may be time to turn to the help of an expert. A non-writer friend or loved one can provide invaluable advice on how to start and finish your novel. You may also want to consult a professional screenplay ghostwriter or editor. Having someone other than yourself working on your manuscript can help you focus on the story instead of having to worry about writing a rough draft.
