Just don’t give up, and use your writing as a way to develop self control and discipline. Finish what you start.
And above all, try to remain true to your art. Writing is a way of expressing yourself, just like sculpting or painting. So keep in mind that this book, and completing it, is more about you, than it is about the people that might read it.
So enjoy the process, and I hope to read the finished product someday.
Well, to get started, don’t let anything distract you. Get the first phase of prep-work done on the book, where you create the characters, and see the world through each of their eyes. Don’t let anything distract you while you do that part.
After you finish that phase, it’s okay to have internet access, and stuff like that. Because you’ll probably want to research things, to make your story more full and accurate. But by that time, you’ll be so interested and caught up in your characters, that they will distract you from your internet browsings. Things you read will remind you about one of them, or give you an idea. And when those ideas come, you act on them, and write write write!
And don’t worry about writing too much. That’s what the editing process is for.
Well, this is obviously your first attempt at writing a book. All novelists and writers go through the same thing on their first try. When you start trying to write a book, it seems overwhelming at first. And a lot of people abandon trying to write a book, because it is too overwhelming for them.
You already have one character. That’s great. I would suggest not worrying about “how they come together”, but rather just focus on writing each individual character out. Keep a personal journal or word document containing all their individual charms, and faults, and desires. Give them all a background, and current state of being in life.
And after you’re done writing all the specifics of your characters, you’ll know them as if they were real people. And when you know them that well, you can start figuring out how they meet, and how they come together in your dark comedy.
Hey, so I was thinking about what we can figure out as far as selling things. I’ve picked up a lot of tricks so far, so I might be able to figure out something for you.
First off, you can make money doing small tasks on Amazon Mechanical Turk. I’ve been paid already, so no, it’s not a scam. Get the Turkopticon browser addon for Firefox or Chrome to see which Requesters are good and which ones are scammers.
I can’t think of an easy answer to your question.
