There’s a lot of noise out there about how to write a bestseller.
Why don’t we break it down.
Let’s simplify the process and get you to bestseller status in 3 days or less!
1. Write a book.
Use as many words as you think you need.
Plots are plots (it’s all been done/redone/overdone; characters are key).
Use a computer… typewriter… pencil or pen…
None of it means anything if you don’t use your heart.
Do not try this at home.
Being your own editor is like trying to cure your own cancer.
Don’t mistake skill or intent for reality.
A friend, family member, professional editor, a dog or cat (if the communication is clear) – anyone (and I mean anyone) but you.
3. Get published.
Big fancy publisher, self-publishing, blog it in serialized form, print them out and hand them to the masses on a street corner, just get it out there. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/06/21/how-to-get-your-book-published/
4. Do a book tour.
Sign books, shake hands, meet your fans, hope they don’t want to steal your kidney as a prize.
5. Become rich and famous.
Yes, become so rich and famous you’ll forget all the hard work…
all the anxiety, rejection, doubt, derision.
Don’t forget not to be a scummy rich and famous person.
6. If 1-5 don’t happen, no worries.
I’m going to keep on writing, reading, researching, submitting, getting rejected, being ignored, and only slightly feeling the stings of all the subtle and not-so-subtle scoffing and mocking.
Repeat again and again. Why? I have to get it all out of my head. As for would-be authors of a ‘certain age’, don’t despair, many famous authors didn’t kick-start their written legacy until later in life, not always for lack of trying: J.R.R. Tolkien, Mark Twain, Toni Morrison, Anna Sewell, Bram Stoker,
Alex Haley, Charles Bukowski, Laura Ingalls Wilder, William S. Burroughs,
Raymond Chandler, Frank McCourt, Marquis de Sade (don’t be that guy).
Even J.K. Rowling and Dr. Seuss
weren’t spring chickens…oh the places you’ll go (er, Hogwarts?).
My point? 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, 3 years or 30…Write, draw, sing, dance, sculpt, design video games, whatever, creativity doesn’t come with an expiry date, a time stamp – as long as you live you can create.
