My Desire to Write A Book

Here is a look at why I want to write a book and how I plan to go about it. I don't know anything about self publishing but I know someone who does.

My Writing Experience

Many people say that I need to have plenty of writing behind me before I write the book, but I feel that I am more than ready. I have two blogs that I write on and I have been a writer for Associated Content, and I have written on several other article sites, some of which are still online and some that have moved.

In school, I was excellent at writing essays and reports. I always kept a diary and I have written letters all my life. I truly believe that I have written plenty of work and that I am extremely prepared to write this book.

My Plan For My Book

As I said, I do have an outline in mind for my book, but I have never written the outline. I have considered writing it down, but since I have already started the book, I really do not think that I need to have it ready. I do have a character list and the base of the story written down.

Once the story is written, I will need to find someone that can aid me in publishing the book. I have never really considered how to go about doing the publishing. I would hope to have a publisher become really interested in the book and offer to publish for me. I have heard that it is best to have an agent if you intend to be published, but I am not sure what that involves.

I do have a distant cousin who wrote a book and had it self published and I might ask him to give me some information on that. I intend to check into some publishing companies as well just to see what is available. I know that I could do an ebook, but I am not really interested in doing that.

I have thought about just writing the story as part of my blog but it does not really go along with the blog and I do not want to have it here and then maybe never have it published. I love fiction books in the same genre as this one will be and so I am very excited to see if I can get it published.

The Desire To Write

For many years, I have wanted to write my own fiction book. I have somewhat of an outline as to how I want the story to go and who I prefer my main characters to be. I have given this some thought and I am sure that my characters are certain to be likeable and that others could connect to them.

As a teenager, but friend always read and she always talked about writing her own book, but she has never done that. I don't know that she has ever attempted to write much. However, I believe that I could ask her to proofread mine and she would be willing to do that. I do think that she would give me advice as well as criticism towards the book.
