Getting the Book Done, Part 1



You just don’t know how many people told me I would never be a writer or be any good at it that’s was about eight books ago. If you think you have a good book in you do it before it’s too late(dead). Just work really hard on something that’s original. I know it’s nothing new under the sun but put your own twist on it.

To all my writing friends, blog Divas, Blog Homies and mega-maniacs everywhere. Oh yeah, I’m back and banging like a Public Enemy track and have you more intoxicated than old grand dad or that yak. Now the school bell have rung and I’m dropping anvil’s on your dome before the class have begun. Trust me words hurt and killed more people than any fool in the street with a gun. Today, I’m talking about coming up with original ideals and getting your book done. I know some people can’t reinvent the wheel and you don’t need a lot of money or any sex appeal or a big time book deal. Oh yes, a lot of you literary snobs might not think so but that’s real. And you can’t bring in a big harvest with no seeds fertility land or a really good plan. Okay lets get at it here this might work or not work for you so check this out Mister & Mrs. Get it Tighter Future Boss Writers. Now before you get started I want to tell you write what you know! If you know about people who sell drugs or a cop or a dam Indian Chief. Or do some real deep research on your characters fiction or nonfiction you don’t want to look like a nut when you put your thing down. Now if you have a computer this is not for you I’ll get you in a minute okay.

Now if you started like me without a computer go to the dollar store and get a five subject spiral books get two their only a dollar so don’t be so cheap all right. One is for all your ideal’s the other one is the one you're putting down your work in for your book. Now while you putting your ideals down make a character list. Now all of you with a computer you do the same thing to write down all your characters. Make sure you put down their age race good and bad habits readers love when people have your hero or heroine have flaws. Smoke, drink, drugs you know what I’m saying .

Now I’m going to tell you this and some of you will not have to do this but write in your ideal book the beginning middle and the end of the book. It’s okay if you don’t stick to the strip but you have something to go on to get flowing. Okay find a good place where you can write. I know some of you don’t have any time with all your kids & your mate taking up all your time. This is where you going to make up your mine if your really going to do this or not. Now if your going to let the world past you bye like it been doing that’s on you make some time. In the morning night or on your job I was writing stuff down on my lunch break. Try to write everyday if you can I know I had to work pay bills and take care of kids too. Put all your best ideals together lock down your concepts what kind of book your writing? Romance love story, Drama, murder mystery, crime, horror, fantasy or whatever once you think you got something good go get started. Push yourself some time if you miss a day its cool just don’t go a whole week or two with out working on your dream. But get it done some how and don’t let any of the haters get you off track you be surprise how much you can get done once you get focus. There is no age limit this is not the music business. 8 to 80 blind crippled or crazy. You just don’t know how many people told me I would never be a writer or be any good at it that’s was about eight books ago. If you think you have a good book in you do it before it’s too late(dead). Just work really hard on something that’s original. I know it’s nothing new under the sun but put your own twist on it.

Here is a real big tip most people with book deal’s don’t know this start off blazing I do mean guns blazing too get your readers by the throat and take them for the ride of there life. Most people live boring lives, sorry y’all but its true unless you’re a rock star, Hip Hop star, FBI agent or an International assassin you won’t need any of these tips. But you might I toss a lot of books in the trash so people have exciting jobs but just can’t write to save their life.

So when people are reading take them there your driving. So don’t write a book about a bookkeeper with five kids who just work and go home and have sex once a month or not at all nobody wants to read that crap-ola. If that’s you be an action star male or female be bold and off the chain that’s what people want to read. If you have a really good imagination you will not have to write down a really good beginning middle and end in your ideal book and think of some good twist along the way trust me you can do it.

Some of you guys will have too. And please don’t kill off your hero or heroine if you making a series. Don’t bring them back from the dead I don’t care if it’s a fantasy book. That’s corny Make your hero or heroine in deep trouble and come back from it along the way. Everyone loves a underdog no matter what race or background they have . I hope that get you excited about getting your book done and it helps you. I’ll tell you more about the book covers & Bar codes in part two so stay tune.

It's your boy
