Writing combines natural talent with perseverance, determination and the ability to work on oneself.
Improve your skills and abilities. Write as much as possible. Try different genres and formats of works. Read a few books on writing. Chat online with aspiring and professional authors.
Do not start work on a book without prior preparation. Study the place and time of your piece. Consider the driving conflict. Be sure to outline the beginning and ending of the main storyline.
Think over the character and external features of the main characters. Make a personal card for each hero. Indicate in it age, name, origin, education, social status, habits, etc.
Decide on the target audience for your book. Books written for children, adolescents and adults differ significantly in the complexity of the language and the richness of the narrative.
Try to make every line work on the development of the plot. Avoid beautiful but unimportant descriptions and witty but empty dialogue.
Use dialogue wisely. Speech is a great way to characterize a character. In addition, dialogues can easily present any idea or possible plot twist to the reader.
Leave room for the reader's imagination. Don't overload the narrative with details. Try to create the picture with a few bright strokes.
Work on your book regularly. Set yourself a daily writing quota. After you finish working on a draft, read the book thoroughly several times, making edits to the plot, removing unnecessary things, and completing the broken storylines.
Send the finished work to the publishers publishing the literature of the corresponding genre. Attach a description of the book to the letter: genre, target audience and a summary of the plot.
