How to Write a Book

Writing Fiction & Poetry : How to Write a Book or Story

How to Write a Book

Hey all, You Tube is great. You never know what you'll find there. Here is an awesome video that explains the basics to writing a book. I think the idea about writing a page a day good one. Also, I think that the question that he asked "why do you want to write?" is a good one as well. Knowing the why will either keep you writing or help you pursue something else. I think an equally valid question is "Who do you want to be?" Because for anyone to have any success in any venture they have to BE someone and DO the work necessary to HAVE the amount of success that comes in that area. But whatever you do decide to DO, I hope that you DO stay creative in the magic of life.

I love writing and reading books. I love the notion that people can make things up in their mind and then make them real on a page, for the pleasure or utility of someone else. One of my favorite mentor on learning how to write a book is Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul.
