    Advertise through social media like Facebook or Twitter.


  • Get a first draft written. Do not even think about editing until a draft is finished! Write now, edit later.
  • Create your fan base on Facebook and Twitter. Share your accomplishments and let friends and fans know when you will start and finish your next novel, story, poem, etc.
    • Be original and make sure you're comfortable with your writing.
  • Don't wait for inspiration, pick a time everyday to write. Always write something down, even if its speed pages, a character log, or a journal entry. Staring at a blank page will get you nowhere.
  • Create a new persona for yourself. For example, J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter is an easy name to remember because it's unusual. Tweak your name into remembrance!
  • Writing is like any other job. You slog on through the work whether or not you enjoy it. The main thing is to get the words done
  • If you are in the middle of a story and you come up with an idea for another story, you can either write it down to remember to do it later, or leave it. However it is best not to abandon a story you have already written. Try to see it through to the end. If this is absolutely impossible, feel free to start on your new idea.
  • Post it on the net first to gain publicity. Advertise through accounts on instagram, twitter and fb or wattpad.
  • Also create a blog and keep on posting on it. You gain publicity, you become popular.


  • Never restrain yourself. You'll feel repressed and people won't see your real writing style.
  • Never copy other book ideas or quotes from other stories without legal permission.
  • It is probably best not to show it to your friends and family. Although they may enjoy reading it, they may not give you and constructive criticism you can work with, and make you overly confident in what you have already written, and closed off to editing and improving.
  • Normally, people are addicted to sci-fi and romance, try to make a fusion! ;-)
  • There is no such thing as writer's block.
