Novel Writing

3 months back I had decided that I’ll write a book.A novel.A fictional work basically. I did start writing also. Initially there was a confusion as to whether it should be a long story or a collection of short stories. After talking to some people about books and what majority of the public wants to read I came down to the conclusion that people-majority I mean-like to read a long story rather a collection of few short. So, finally started writing a long story…did write some 2-3 chapters and then I realized that it’s just not taking a good shape. I thought may be because I’m a first time writer and that’s why the expert flavor of writing is not coming in. But then I gave it a serious thought and then I realized that book writing doesn’t happen just like that. It’s like growing a plant which gradually becomes a tree over a period of time. 


3 things,according to me,are very important for the same:


Focus
Regularity
Nurturing


And needless to mention that all the above are missing in my work currently. I need to be more focussed and regular at writing and once these two are attempted I’m sure I’ll start nurturing the story as well.I don’t claim that after applying these three rules I’ll be a successful writer. But I’ll surely rank somewhere in the starters,right? After all, you are there to read my book for sure,I know that šŸ™‚
