Content Summary

It’s said that everyone has a novel in them. And judging by what people are saying quite a few are in the process of writing one. Indeed, almost half the people I know are either writing a novel, thinking about writing a novel, or dreaming about writing a novel. So, if you have a good idea, have an itch to write that just won’t go away, and dream maybe of seeing your work on the shelf, here’s some advice on how to start the process and see it through.

I take this advice from watching the thousands of writers passing through TheNextBigWriter and Booksie sites which I have developed.

I originally published this book as a series of pages on the old TheNextBigWriter site. With the launch of the new site, I wanted to transfer it over and begin to update the content. When the original book came out, Myspace was the dominant social network and the Kindle had never been invented. It has never been a better time to be a writer. I truly believe the Internet has democratized the publishing process and brought writing out from the dark ages. No longer do we write alone, begging our significant others to take a look at a manuscript that might remain locked away forever.

How does an individual know they are ready to write a novel? It's sort of like running a marathon. Some people consider the task ahead, mull it over, and then finally decide to take the plunge. Others wake up one day and say: "I think I will write a novel."

Whatever path brings you to the starting point, I salute you. I have been working on a novel for the past 13 years (yes, I might finally find the time to get it done this year). I salute the writers out there who work after-hours, in the early mornings before work, after the kids are in bed, or whenever they can grab a few minutes of time.

I want to thank members of TheNextBigWriter who contributed to the project and I hope to update the content with more insight from other members and passersby. I welcome your comments and thoughts and hope this book provides some guidance and inspiration and if you are thinking of embarking on the novel path.
