By popular demand (makes it popular, is not ok, 1 person, but six people?) I've combined a step by step process how to get Hey you need a novel OK, write write us! Mark although I have things increments, he managed to get what I was doing and pass the phase of the order, while the work to the point where I have enough with a sensation of book writing. Some parts of my process like a little obsessive, but the most important part for quick writing is what you write in the subject, until you write, and it means a lot as far as possible the planning.A novel to each Lugarme of planning will take between a few days and weeks. Usually I floor, while I was on other things, like work to change, but I had also the weeks where I have nothing but together a history. I have to say that I'll novels, rather than actually finished writing. My computer is a piece worlds began interspersed with shells. I think that's a normal part of the process. If you do good, all the things that is wrong with this idea, I thought it was surprising last week check out planning. Sometimes, these errors are accessible and it is sometimes better to go. However, the best way is to discover that a novel is not as strong as they thought that when the design instead of 3 chapters. Not every idea deserves a novel?Well, enough of that. You've seen how I for novels. It is better that I am able to articulate that for each book, here my changes global process. I really hope that everyone should take place and how to organize their own writing system to accelerate something useful. Write a list of the scene where this texture to get, I wrote at the end of the third fracture of scene and scenes and chapters. I have spoken. Oh my God, I have this message. I am writing for sites like FictionPress and similar and set to update every week. Planning help the story progress so that it does not block t and ' disappoint readers.I've already tried this method in a new story ' I have worked and have excellent feedback. Thank you very much!. Of course, regardless of what was your novel, it is important to remember that no one has its big ideas at the same time. It is more likely that the texture will change the way you write. Characters grow and deepen, discover the holes, once thought and ideas that you thought you were stupid and incredible home. All this is in the natural process of writing. You do the plans and just roll with things. After all, the real purpose of planning is the appropriation of knowledge. If the inspiration, the best decision for the book later later make this knowledge in the future. Can never contain planning. Rachel-thank you!That is very good. I took a few notes for me some instructions in courses and in large printed letters on my updated desktop it had. You can stay in memory, car!I believe that under the law, any approach reduced BS and is easy for us to apply any kind of writing of this company.Thank you once again!Tuning, written about of!. Hi Rachel, great article, helped me to launch some projects, literally for years took a blow. It was decided, or rather hope, to move and I have read many articles and several books, but was your best and easiest.A writer, the seat of your pants, and what is the result, as I am caught in the trap, things took place after some time. It may be the reverse, there are a lot of things, I got the new format or the Fall.Jedoch made a sketch or a plan, who have in the past dismissed as production, or somehow found a way to recycle, this means that comes the time of the press and writing, everything is usually are. Even in our day, as it plot that see me and came to his article (and others), never my spurs in front my perception has changed. I appreciate it, to write again. But can the deadlines for each step must, as I know that my profile has is not perfect.Once more, as to make on the way, as it would be. And that is my system, I hope that you will find something here to help you in your process of writing. Once more, I do not know can I note how planning has improved my way of writing my experience to write. I have never liked to write a book, or had come my books when I was working on a plan. If you spoil the kind of writer who wrote the seat of your pants and afraid of strict write planning fun, my only suggestion to try just once. You may be surprised, that I hope that this message had existed a few years ago, when my work-in-progress began. Me ' m of the redesign after written hand half of my MS and then to understand the story begins, he was so poor that I had to repeat. So in the last month, I reviewed my ' action and world and began to write on 1 page. It was a sort of ' pain, but my story is better than ever.Great post! Certainly a ll ' economies. :). Hi, after an introduction terrible day of my University (sophomore, creative writing and English literature). Where in my first module; ' Writing and editing fiction ', Monday morning (I hate Monday) pretty boring teacher told me, a class to use a verb, before starting a sentence and I have problems to change the time. I just ' t want to write more stories. Home arrived today depressed and desperate than just what I wanted to achieve in reality and I began to think of alternatives to boring. To the wallow in self-pity, I tried a story about Ms. Palabra beginning to be only to be caught and completely turn the verb construction ' of ' thing, rebelled and then blocked ridiculous introduction to my story. I just stumbled on your blog/planning path and encouraged me a little. I have encouraged to plan, something indeed always avoided. And I have to say, it is much easier to understand, that the snowflake method literally I wanted me to do her lol of the complexity of the wine. Hi Rachel, I thank you for revealing the secrets of writing for us! Follow the fantastic blog. He hopes some of them to share information about the Assembly. I finished recently wrote a first draft of a novel imagination * egg * and now I have a mountain of work and polishing before me. I would like to know ' how to edit! (Especially if it motivates no chocolate to keep cabinets left us authors!) To read the new previous chapter of my book, I am painfully retractable in descriptive or recognize phrases as a chapter on the required information, new developments from drowning. Can also be difficult to know what changes and this is not to change - I ' m reluctant to start to cut or modify, if necessary, make it worse! Fortunately more reading, I think I love scenes ' written notice. Yay! I have to admit, I have virtually no planning when I started this novel. I got an idea, he ran with it and hope that happened then my imagination with which would go! But with the success in planning, I think that I can convert! :) Congratulations for his novels, can ' t wait to read the following books. Thank you Teresa. well said. I have no timetable for my first finished novel, it lasts for 25 years and was a trilogy. My fourth novel will be about a month, and my chapter program, this is what will happen with a place for each day of the week. Much easier to draw and write. I love your allocation of inertia. If you find a boring scene, I'm completely rethinking or summarize narrative and movement. But I have to do is a normal part of the process-Paul. Draw a map. In fact, I usually have at the end because in step 2, but if I have a detailed map of the moment, I do not usually do, the world in general, as well as all important posts. Write short descriptions of each site. This helps things to describe me a uniform and removed this shit how do I make the charge. Perform a check of boredom. Once broke my novel scenes and chapters (cut and reworked the plot when the book is too long), both of the conspiracy is last and the most important trial: inertia. What you should do here is think through my region, presenting the story in my mind, you thought that it was a movie. There is no sound, no dialogue, go the story with a scene in my head, history flow test. All time, research, I made the lenses. Moved that the action was everywhere? Are there scenes that jump or sections, that I can't see? If so, return to these points and you understand why. See if thanks to the action of this kind in the veil, which is the spirit to see its history with the mind of the reader, not the writer. The mind of a writer could be regarded as a necessary stage for the sake of the plot, but if the mind of the reader bored you the good things jump right. It is bad. I want that my readers not to be bored or what I write leap. Also, I will not waste my time writing boring garbage, regardless, which corresponds to the action. Everything is this part to be enthusiastic about everything what is written. If a subject is boring, launch and recover. Ripping a finite field can be scary, but remember: there are more and more as a way to solve problems, and a scene becomes boring with an interesting, generally replaced in order to increase the bet or raise the tension. This step can unnecessarily, especially because it was on the plot of 10000 times now, but the last thirty minutes and do it anyway. A review of boredom, it's your last bulwark against the stupid scenes later rewrite. If you take the time and register each gold make scene at the beginning, you who work and torment more later lost. I think that it will work for everyone, part of this method are personal and you can not reason for his books. Do not hesitate to cut, to expand or to my process of adding points, where you feel you must.Step 0: You decide what book to write!This is one of those decisions, which seems obvious, but you get a lot of problems if you give the respect it deserves. If he wrote a book, take a very large project. As such, it is the first question that you make, if this is really the story I want to spend my time? It is necessary, not field or the characters entered are the certainty, that the idea of the book floating head is something which not only for time to write, edit and are interested in a manuscript of polishing but made it, so need what you want your book (d.h.(, ein Agent bitte FareottenerePor, seine Verleger, fantastisch zu verkaufen usw.). Your time is precious, losing you are not for an unenthusiastic project on their goals to work or not.While doing part of the planning process, this step is very important. Not go and try some projects size before installing it. Don't forget that you can always change plans later think, but time cannot be recovered, then do a favor and think about things weeks works pass on a world, you're not really interested, write.Step 1: what KnowNow have I decided that I would write the first, what I do, is that I know on the book of the novel to write. In general, are these ideas, which exploded in my head and has the history to write first. Sometimes it is a character or a situation, sometimes it's a magic or a system configuration. What write quickly and efficiently. Caution you will are not accurately and not obliged to write about the first Flash of interest. It is the idea of what excites me the most about this book, what makes it so special.I use to encode this step and to organize what I white, my world, characters and plot, it tends to be very low. But they leave something down, you have a basic framework and now you can I have the holes fill in each actual writing.Step 2: Place the BasicsThis is part of the process, where I understand the structure of the three pillars of the story - the characters, plot and setting. You know, this high school English. I write to use Scrivener (incredible program), I create you connected to reject a folder for each of these topics and everything under the remote control, but you do. While you can save your notes directly, it will make any system.Now I want to talk about bare bones? Here is my list: celebs who need: the main characters (usually 2-4), antagonists (at least 2) and de facto players (as needed). How To Write An Ebook In 10 Days The figures are highly subjective and vary from book to book, but you get the idea. MCS and antagonists are explicit, makes the players are in the history, not for MCS or against them, but they are no less important for adaptation. These are the people who move and shake the world. I think in my Eli Bautista Etmon Monpress or Dumbledore in the Harry Potter books. Know, the big Namen.Jetzt, I have not yet detailed character sheets, I am only the artistic name, what they want and I have this feeling of them as characters. Histories and physical descriptions are below. Everything is now interested in me, that that person should refer to history. He had character sheets, have been nothing more than a name and a description of a line at this stage things and which is perfectly flat of Ordnung.Der, need: end and beginning, in that order. Understand that the subject of a book is my number one priority. Once I have my starting point and my end, they created the clear tones-scene-twists, which already happened to me. Don't worry, that all these plans to connect each other, or even if the facts in the correct order.It is also the point where determine if this book is part of a series or a unique adventure and, if it is a series, then expires at the end of the country of destination and plot where the action is this current book, part of the larger system.Finally, I write a kind of manifesto on the kind of story I'm trying to say. First of all, it is an adventure story, a story of rebellion, a love story? A story of adventure can be a love story and a love story is an adventure, but it is important to decide quickly, what story is the primary account. Finally, a comedy-drama focuses on the scenes is no adventure story. The tone is different, therefore must know from the outset, this gracious influence of history that I write, how this decision on the style of the novel on a single page.You need to adapt: the system of magic, if available. The fundamental political system. Find this book and what is connected to the rest of the world? What kind of culture is it? What is the State of the art? Who has the power in this world and why? How is the world in its current state and why? When I write a fantasy which I do the stories of the creation and development of the SciFi Pantheon, you understand, how the people in the room. This step varies greatly from book to book. In a Dungeon of company basically to write until I feel I have only in what kind of world, the action takes place (although still once, don't have the details yet).This is the most important thing: what we are doing here, is the purest form of the structure of the world, and it must be extremely entertaining. Own world, characters and plot together, fun, seriously consider, this is the book you need to write.Step 3: Fill the time marks step 3 go, I have all the basic elements. I know how my novel begins and ends, as some large scenes, I know who and where he was detained. Now, it is nitty gritty ensemble.When you arrive at this stage, is the first thing that I did not compile the texture. A book is grounded at the same time, so instead of trying directly next to a plot to break into small pieces to write things. Thanks to the work that I did, I know that the story, which is usually the case begin. Before you begin, show you my motivations of the characters and the world and issues mean, what happens then? And then I write. Once below always uncomfortable and thus gradually full plot.Of course, I'm still stuck. Sometimes I do not know what comes next. To jump, in this case below, that the line is generally straight until the end (who already have me prepared, smart!) or to one of the great scenes, I was thrilled. When you reach the large scenes, a struggle, the show you is my world and my characters and questions about how it happened? And then I come back here, where the links for the first time or we go to cause the crash.Sometimes, but I'm really how, I have no idea how two scenes connected, or perhaps can I use since the middle of the book to the end. When this happens, it is very tempting, is to think that the plot completely but here is lousy, a secret: there is no such thing as a conspiracy is further repaired. Often have no intelligent to find solution, only to find out why something does not work and the solution are presented semplicemente.una the first lessons, was that I write learned on this subject when I was blocked, because I didn't know anything. If a parcel of land does not advance, it is because it is something that you don't know. Understand what it is until the plot more tenacious delete.If I am serious, I left the story go and start with other things. In the line where is to fill these character sheets. I work the detailed history of my world and spend time with my characters, trying to understand what you think. When is still not enough, so I backed, determined in ridiculous detail what is happening in the world where the action blocks. Described, exactly what they do the bad guys, only, this is often enough, hanging out this action in his place.Learn from my mistake never therefore are involved in determining the details, to kill the novel itself. For a long time until I actually finished a novel he worked on an epic fantasy scan. Now I'm reading that a writer must know the inside and the outside, your world online, so I'm working my world TM install. I wrote and wrote and it reaches the absurd details of the days, which had nothing to do with my story, how the political context of the wars to make increased from 500 years before the plot and good manners at table in the country beyond the sea was still to visit. Halfway to the nomenclature different principles dead of the Empire which reduced to 1 000 years was, threw the novel nausea. Well, if you like their worlds on the level of detail, but in any case it is how too much planning and you can your world before starting to write no such thing, even if you're not careful.I know that I have reached the end of step 3, if I have any land, begin to write the end of omis without spaces or scenes. At this point, I have blocked pretty well, I wrote letters to all my characters and the most important settings. If I forgot the details in someone or something to write, can sometimes go back and but not always fill. As a general rule, if you do not have your information, while I wrote the argument that what is a character that is not important to the story that I thought.Finally (and this is where things get a little evil), I know that I'm ready to go, if the feeling of the book is tangible to the last part of my program. All my books have a unique feeling, almost like a flavor in my head that belongs to the single book. I can't really describe it, but it is never moved to the next step until I can clearly hear the book. I think that you can call the entry of the pound. This is what I feel the indications of Muse.Paso 4: create a company, the Foundationthis was the point where it comes next and diving one in the novel, but now when I write quickly, I found that one day do an additional step, the problems of weeks of refinement on the line to save. At the moment, I have my land, I know that my character, my world has its own history, rules, and touch, so now it is time to start to pour concrete details support my novel and modify it to obtain.In this step. ' I just discovered your blog and am impressed by '. Normally, I am a writer ' Pantster and that works well for short stories. After a series of novels to the left of their fate (writing, reading), I decided to change my habits. Then, you copy and paste your advice in a Word document and m with ' to write a longer article. Thank you for your method. To find out who, what, writing. It is usually only a paragraph in the field and the note, see who, what and when to watch. This is to ensure that I do not have a string argument (or worse, a parcel of decision) with information that I do not know. It is a resource and a double control of my country less. ,,.
