Or perhaps you’ve dabbled for years, maybe even written a story or two and want to increase your chances of becoming a published writer.
“How can the Library help me?” I hear you ask.
Step one: Read, read and read widely and critically – dissect those novels. Get a feel for plots, writing styles, character development, scene description, character point-of-view, beginnings, middles and endings.
Step two: Surround yourself with other people who are passionate about writing. Attend Library events, like “From manuscript to publication” this Thursday. Join a writing group or association – as a member you will have access to great resources, critiquing services, contests, contacts and much more.
Step three: Revise and polish your manuscript as you continue to learn the craft and improve your writing. Browse the writing resources in the Library for tips and tricks.
Step four: Keep writing, and remember that every published writer is a writer who didn’t give up.
